TREVISO, Italy – The coffee competitions #WLAC and #WCIGS have come to an end. Sanremo Coffee Machines, Qualified Sponsor of the WCE, is ready for new adventures after the #BrazilWCC, the coffee championship finals in Belo Horizonte.
November has been an emotional journey both for baristas and for the international coffee machine company. During three intense days the coffee lovers and Sanremo have shared knowledge, experiences, the passion and dedication that make the #SanremoCommunity so great.
The Café Racer (Official Machine of the WCE) has been the main topic of all the coffee experts and everybody had a chance to try it out or get some support directly from the S.W.A.T (Sanremo World Academy Team).
The latter, formed by exceptional baristas, has also made a huge difference for the competitors of the #WLAC and #WCIGS finals.
Both baristas and champions-to-be had the opportunity to get advice from the S.W.A.T and to perfect their coffee training on the Café Racer.
“The best part of the S.W.A.T is that these experts and professional baristas are just like us. They are still competing and are major champions in their field and they were here to provide advice, knowledge and some funny stories that helped us relax before stepping on stage.” Agnieszka Rojewska, World Barista Champion 2018
“The team has been incredibile, the support has been excellent. Thank you very much Sanremo.” James Shepherd (SCA Europe National Account Executive).
“I’m here to compete and make coffee with the Café Racer and the Sanremo guys. I have to thank Sanremo for the opportunity and for the lovely machine. The Racer has a really beautiful design, the look is marvelous but without taking anything away from the technical aspects. In fact, as a barista, I have to say that the milk steaming it’s really easy to use with the Racer.” Dhan Tamang (six times UK Latte Art Champion)
“Sanremo Coffee Machines made us proud as the italian Qualified Sponsor of the World Coffee Events. The S.W.A.T and the whole Sanremo group provided exceptional help, team spirit and modesty during the competitions. Wherever they were needed you could see them bringing heavy Café Racers by hand or helping out other baristas with any support they could give. It was great to see such collaboration between Sanremo and the baristas that were getting ready to compete.” SCA Italy coordinator Cristina Caroli
#BrazilWCC has come to an end, but there are many other competitions that will see the Cafè Racer as Official Machine and Sanremo Coffee Machines as Qualified Sponsor of the World Coffee Events for the next two years!
“It has been an extraordinary experience, we’ve felt the love and enthusiasm of the coffee lovers community and we’re already working to step it up a level. Until the next time, Sanremo shares it’s best wishes and congratulations to Irvine and Dan for their first place of #WLAC and #WCIGS!
See you at the finals in Berlin 2019, can’t wait to repeat this amazing experience with you all.” Carlo De Sordi, Sales and Marketing Manager Sanremo Coffee Machines
