World of Coffee is happening in Berlin right now and with it the World Latte Art Championship, World Coffee in Good Spirits Championship, World Cup Tasters Championship, and the Cezve/Ibrik Championship. I’m not there and I’m a little bummed. Berlin! New tech! Coffee in Good Spirits! It’s the epicenter of the coffee universe, and here I am sitting in my living room, watching replays of the French Open. There’s a cruelty to it all really.
But for Seattle residents, a little piece of the international affair is taking place right in their backyard. For their newest residency, the La Marzocco Cafe have invited Berlin’s Bonanza Coffee and Tokyo’s ONIBUS Coffee to take over.
