World of Coffee, the ’Oscar Gala’ in the coffee world, was held this year in Amsterdam, from 21-23 of June. While most of Estonians celebrated Midsummer day - made camp fires, barbecued and enjoyed the longest night of the year - I took part of World of Coffee, where the World Barista Championship competition took place this year. I saw and discovered new coffee trends and machines, new origins, varieties and listened to lectures on various different subjects.
