New technical judges for the Espresso Italiano Champion


In preparation for the upcoming Espresso Italiano Champion, the competition for top baristas organised by the Italian Espresso National Institute (INEI), Wega has hosted a training course for the competition’s technical judges.

Two competition locations have been set up within the company to enable those involved – a group of professionals from the world of INEI, to learn how to best perform this new role.

In 2016 the championship will boast even more dates both in Italy and abroad, involving an even greater number of baristas across the world: an expansion that will play a crucial role in spreading the culture of authentic Italian espresso. This year is notable in that, for the first time, stages will be held in Japan in addition to those scheduled for China, Korea and Taiwan.
