2017 World Barista Championship
Over 60 national barista champions from around the globe competed for the World Barista Champion title, live in front of the crowds at Cafe Show Seoul, host of the 2017 World Barista Championship. South Africa’s reigning barista champion, Winston Thomas certainly did us proud, preparing 4 espressos, 4 milk drinks, and 4 original signature drinks to exacting standards in 15 minutes.
After debuting in Dublin, the WBC competition paired together competitors in 10 groups to reward support and collaboration between baristas. Dale Harris, the national champion from United Kingdom, took the title of 2017 World Barista Champion. It was an exciting four days in Seoul, with The Coffee Magazine and Origin Coffee Roasters providing awesome updates and coverage. Congrats and well done Winston, we’re so proud and look forward to where your coffee journey will take you next!
We absolutely loved watching Winston competing at the World Barista Championships. What style, composure and talent!
