From April 27th until May 1st 2011 America`s best baristas will compete again during the US Barista Championship in Houston (Texas). MAHLKÖNIG USA supports this top-class contest again this year as official grinder sponsor.

The US Barista Championship takes place at the “23rd SCAA Exposition and Symposium” in the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston. 38 regional champions who have qualified during the preliminaries in six different US-regions will then be on the competition stage eager to win the national title. In every single region on average 30 baristas competed against each other. Those who will then participate at the final are real professionals who managed to discard a great number of highly skilled fellow competitors.

During the preliminaries roughly 65% of the Baristas worked with the K30 or K30 Twin from MAHLKÖNIG. For the US Competition in Houston around 20 participants have decided to use Espresso grinders made by MAHLKÖNIG.

The workshops which will be offered during the SCAA-event will be equipped with MAHLKÖNIG grinders as well, like the “Guatemala Lab” for the Cupping- and Roasting workshops or the “K30 Varios” for the Espresso Lab. More than 600 attendees have already registered for the numerous workshops organized by the SCAA.

As in previous years MAHLKÖNIG once more backs up the national competition just as much as the regional preliminaries in the USA as grinder sponsor. MAHLKÖNIG completes this support through their commitment also on an international level by acting as official sponsor of the World Barista Championship (WBC), which will take place from 2nd – 5th June 2011 in Colombia´s capital, Bogota.

Shortly after the WBC the world`s elite of Baristas will meet again at the SCAE World of Coffee 2011 event from June 22nd to 24th in the Dutch city of Maastricht. There the World Latte Art, Cuptasting, Coffee in Good Spirits, Ibrik / Cezve Championships and Brewers Cup will be run. Here MAHLKÖNIG appears not only as official grinder sponsor of the World Latte Art Championship but also equips various workshops with Espresso- and Shop grinders.
