Wega at the Salone del Libro Book Fair for the 2014 Cappuccino Championship

Campionato Cappuccino (8)

The curtain on excellence came up in Torino, the city of literary cafés.

On Thursday, May 8th, 88 contestants from hotel institutes and professional schools in Piedmont and the Veneto were put to the test at the 2014 Cappuccino Championships, which were held on the grounds of the Salone del Libro Book Fair: during the event, which is in its 8th edition, more than 500 cappuccinos were prepared. Finally, two final winners were proclaimed: Claudio Nazzi from Desenzano del Garda in the Senior section and  Jilian De Blasi from Engim di Nichelino (TO) in the Junior section.

Wega was one of the partners in the event, supplying 3 Polaris machines and three 6.4 coffee grinders that the young contestants used during the test. Special thanks from area manager Gianluigi Sora goes to prof. Sergio Pedone, who, as always, was elemental in insuring the event’s success.
