    Last week, 54 baristas from around the world took to their brewing stations to compete for the title of World Barista Champion. On Thursday, that honor went to Japan's Hidenori Izaki, marking the first time that an Asian has won the WBC. Second place went to Hong Kong's Kapo Chiu, using coffee roasted by Andy Sprenger's Sweet Bloom Coffee. Andy notes on the Sweet Bloom blog that it was the same coffee he'd served up for his 2nd place win in the World Brewers Cup championship. We're absolutely delighted to share coffees from Andy's Sweet Bloom Coffee roasters here on Coffee Kind and to offer our congratulations once again on a job well done!
