Just a few months ago, I had one of the biggest highlights of my coffee career. Participating in the Lithuanian Barista championship I won the second place in the competition.
Russia has traditionally a strong tea culture, but now we are seeing an impressive coffee boom. Coffee is becoming one of the features of contemporary urban life.
It was several months ago that the World Barista Championship 2017 was held in Seoul. However, many countries are already running national championships to determine who will win the right to represent them at the 2018 World Barista Championship, which is taking place in June in Amsterdam.
