Week beginning June 5th - World Barista Championships

Last night saw the finals of the WBC held in Bogota, Colombia and Square Mile Coffee who roast our beans for us again had a major representation there, with their own John Gordon trying out to be the World Champion for the second year in a row.

We have known John here at Kaffeine since we first opened and he came and did a weeks work with us, something I will be forever grateful for. At that stage he was the UK latte art champion and we were very much in awe of him and very humble that he chose to work with us.

John ended up coming 6th on Sunday night, yes that's sixth in the world. An amazing achievement and full repsect to him and the SQM crew who supported him.

We hope that he competes again and gets the coveted crown one day, but at least in the meantime we can only hope that he continues to be a great ambassador for coffee.

John, well done. A true champion.
