Razstavljalci

Na festivalu smo se prvič kot mikropražarna in coffeshop, predstavili tudi mi. Skupaj z ostalimi slovenskimi ter tujimi razstavljalci smo nudili obiskovalcem festivala naše kave. Pripravljali smo jih na filter in espresso način priprave. Na voljo smo imeli Kenyo Maganjo, Ethiopio Edido, Indio Chamundi ter Guatemalo Fica Pena Blanca. Levo od nas se je Stow predstavljal na novi LaMarzocco Levi, ki je prava paša za oči. Nasproti nas so bili Goat Story, ki so navduševali z nnjihovo nagrajeno Gino.

Across us were the fascinating Goat Story with their award winning Gina.

Tekmovanja

V spodnjem prostoru muzeja je potekal še Latte Art Throwdown ter Barista Battle Challenge. Lahko smo gledali koliko znanja in koncentracije je potrebuje barista pri tekmovanju. Ne bi verjeli kako hitro vam lahko odletijo točke. J Zmagovalec Latte Arta je bil Deepak Rajkumar. Velika nagrada Barista Challenga(LaMarzocco Linea Mini) je šla v Zagreb. Priboril si jo je Karlo Purić. Čestitke obema!

Competition

Next to us was also Latte Art Throwdown and Barista Battle Challenge. We could see how much knowledge and concentration is needed at a competition. You wouldn’t believe how quicly you loose point. The winner of Latte Art was Deepak Rajkumar. And the big price)Linea Mini) went to Karlo Purić. Congratulations to both of you!

Ostalo dogajanje

Nad vsem vrvežem spodnjega dela muzeja je v pritličju bilo drugačno dogajanje. Srečali ste lahko tuje pražarne, pridelovalce kave, potnike s kavo in vse ostale, ki so tako ali drugače povezani s kavo. V posebni dvorani so potekala predavanja strokovnjakov. Nabirali smo si lahko dragoceno znanje iz različnih kavnih področij. Nekateri razstavljalci so delali tudi cuppinge svojih kav.
V manjšem prostoru pritljičja je bila soba za Cupping. Poskusiti je bilo možno resnično veliko različnih kav, različnih pridelovalcev, procesov, regij in varietalov. Mislim, da so vsi bili najbolj navušeni ko je svoje kave na Cupping dala Lamastus kmetija. Letos so namreč dobili laskavi naziv za najvišjo ceno na dražbi kav.

What else was happening?

Like on any other coffee festival, you could meet a bunch of very interesting people, like roasters, farmers, coffee dealers, baristas and many more. There was a Lab where we could listen to great variety of coffee lectures. Also some other interesting coffee wholesalers that were helding their own cuppings every hour. The big hype was also about the Cupping room. Especially when Lamastus was presenting their Geshas and Other varietals. We weere really happy to be able to experience souch diversity coffee flavour wise.

Nemogoče je vse stisniti v en zapis. V nadaljnih blogih bomo zato objavili še kaj več o dogodkih iz festivala, zaenkrat pa vas puščamo s tem krajšim vtisom.

It’s impossible to put everything in one blog entry so we will do more in the future. Until then, we leave with this short impression of the beautiful coffee festival.

Prijetno branje!
