Congrats to the barista champion!
In a wowing presentation that excelled in the quality of the coffee, David Coelho conquered once more the title of best Portuguese barista.
He was followed by Pedro Marmelo who won 2nd place and Verónica Cabeceira who was 3rd.
During 2 days of competition, the jury (presided by 2 international judges, Sonja Grant and Elisabet Sereno, scrutinized and evalutated the performance of 11 barista who had come to Lisbon from different regions of Portugal. Each of them prepared 4 espressos, 4 coffee-based drinks with milk and a signature drink - on a fiamma Compass Dual Boiler, official machine of the championship.
Beside the sensorial and technical criteria defined by the SCAE (Speciality Coffee Association of Europe), each barista's stage performance was also evaluated.
