ELMSFORD, NY – Urnex Brands, Inc. announced yesterday the names of eight baristas who have been selected as Urnex Global Ambassadors.
The Ambassadors, who are each national champions, will represent their countries at the World Barista Championships in Seattle this April.
Urnex hopes to both recognize the talents and technical expertise of each competitor and learn from their perspective on the importance of coffee machine cleaning.
The Ambassadors will formally collaborate with Urnex in both a product development and an endorsement relationship throughout 2015.
Each will also work closely with the Urnex Marketing and R&D team while also being aligned with Urnex distributors in their home country.
