Danish Barista Champion Morten Vestenaa is getting ready to represent our tiny nation in the 2009 World Barista Championship in Atlanta which happens just next week! His grand rehearsel has actually taken place just as I write this.
This year I will be staying home with my little son and enjoy some family time. It’s a bit wierd not attending the WBC for the first time since 2004, but luckily Linus and Karen have agreed to spend endless hours in airports and hotels just to keep the rest of us a little in touch with the specialty coffee community. Thanks guys. We know it’s a heavy load to carry. Give our best over-seas!
Morten has a blog where those interested can read about his preparations. He’s using a special roast of the Idido coffee that Casper has made. We don’t want to reveal to much – we’ll leave that up to Morten.
All we can say is GOOD LUCK MORTEN!
