World of Coffee & Tea – offering the best brews by global champions

Supported by ASEAN Coffee Federation, Barista Assocation of Thailand, Lao Coffee Association, Malaysia Specialty Coffee Association, Philippines Coffee Board, Singapore Coffee Association, Indonesia Coffee Exporters Association and Specialty Coffee Association of Indonesia, the World of Coffee & Tea surpassed expectations this year with the largest gathering of the coffee and tea industry in Thailand.

Mr Victor Mah, President of ASEAN Coffee Federation said, “We are proud to have once again given our support to the World of Coffee & Tea. This is a great vehicle for the coffee and tea industry to network and gain new business opportunities. The many activities surrounding this segment serve as a spotlight on Asia’s coffee and tea industry.”

Over at the Celebrity Coffee Bar, an exciting line-up of 16 of the world’s best baristas and judges demonstrated their finest coffee skills with LIVE on-demand performances, meet and greet sessions, free-style espresso and cappuccino challenges, to name a few. The star-studded event featured three world champion baristas – namely Japan’s Hidenori Izaki (World Barista Champion 2014), Greece’s Stefanos Domatiotis (World Brewers Cup Champion 2014) and George Koustoumpardis (World Coffee in Good Spirits Champion 2015) who were among the 11 national champions as well as two World Barista Championship judges. Visitors got a chance to rub shoulders with the creme-de-la-creme of the coffee world, as well as sample one of the world‘s most expensive cup of coffees, Ninety Plus Coffee retailing at US$100.

2014 World Champion Barista, Hidenori Izaki said, “As the first Asian World Champion Barista, it was heartening to meet many of my counterparts from all over the world, exchange knowledge and collaborate on LIVE demos to a crowd of global coffee aficionados. I look forward to seeing them again in 2017!”

2016 Singapore National Barista Champion Regina Tay said, “It’s been a privilege to showcase my skills in front of such a dynamic crowd at Celebrity Coffee Bar. Being among industry greats was truly the icing on the cake!”

Visitors also gained valuable knowledge and insights from industry professionals at True Artisan Cafe by La Marzocco and Boncafe Training Sessions. The return of CTI Latte Art Duel where local Thai baristas compete against each other in a race against the clock to impress a panel of Champion Baristas was particularly captivating.
