“The new RS system, introduced in 2014, took even bigger step into temperature stability, resulting in an almost impenetrable coffee consistency, rated highly by the competition baristas to the extend that 95% of them would recommend it.
In the 2014 competition we have seen some of the great UK Coffee Personalities along with many up and coming baristas blazing the ever developing coffee trail. What you have seen those guys do in competition will become practice in the high street in the coming months and years.”
This year was the final year for Sanremo as a UKBC sponsor and we would like to thank you everyone we have met along the way and enjoyed this fantastic journey with us. Read the full thank you note from Andrew Tucker here.
Maxwell Colonna-Dashwood has brought a real gentlemanly quality to the competition with his articulate but accurate presentations giving such clarity to his coffees you can taste then before they are extracted! He really gets what the new wave of coffee is all about and how it applies to business. If you want to learn and be inspired about coffee, don’t miss one of the talks or performances.- Andrew Tucker
We love John. Since the first year of our involvement with UKBC John Gordon was there, on the road setting up the UKBC heats and finals. He has always put so much in to the development of coffee that people will always appreciate and follow him. – Andrew Tucker
Gwylim Davis brought a captivating dimension to the competition.. He is a great advocate and ambassador for world of coffee. He not only won the UKBC in 2009, but was also World Barista Champion the same year. Every time I talk to Gwilym I learn something new and get excited about coffee. – Andrew Tucker
