On September 27-30, the World Coffee Championships (WCC) came to Melbourne, Australia, with close to 100 national champions and competitors participating in the World Barista Championship (WBC) and the World Brewers Cup (WBrC). Comprised of three rounds, the WBC sees champion competitors each prepare 4 espressos, 4 milk drinks, and 4 original signature drinks to exacting standards in a 15-minute performance set to music. The WBrC highlights the craft of filter coffee brewing by hand, promoting manual coffee brewing and service excellence across two competitive rounds.
