Looks like we will be seeing Craig Simon from Veneziano Coffee Roasters in Vienna next month at the World Barista Championships! Congratulations to Craig, Veneziano's Production Manager, who rocked the Australian judges in Melbourne last weekend to win the Australian title.

Veneziano fielded competitors in each event represented by staff from Queensland, South Australia and Victoria and placed in each category. In addition to Craig’s win in the Australian Barista Championship, the company came out with third place in the other three competitions, being Australian Latte Art, Australia Cup Tasting and Australian Brewers Cup. Check out the results here.

Espro Inc. has had a presence in Australia through a select number of retailers and establishments since 2005, including Veneziano who carry the Espro Press and Calibrated Tamper.

Espro will be attending SCAE 2012 in Vienna next month and are proud to be sponsoring the World Brewers Cup. You'll find Chris McLean, Espro's lead designer and co-founder, brewing coffee from the Espro Press at the Brew Bar. That's if he isn't too busy checking out Craig Simon's performance on the World stage!
