Our thanks should go out to Natvia for their enthusiastic support and sponsorship of World Coffee Events and particularly their Send me to Vienna promotion, which truly embodies the spirit of WCE’s mission to bring together the global coffee community.

The Send me to Vienna contest will take four members of our coffee community plus one guest each to the SCAE World of Coffee this June, which is of course the site of the 2012 World Barista Championship, World Cup Tasters Championship, World Brewers Cup and more.

In case you missed it, they’ve also been busy writing about some of the people involved in the promotion and events. Be sure to check out Natvia’s latest newsletter with profiles of and comments from Ross Quail (St. Ali, Sensory Lab), Brian W. Jones (DCILY) and Barista Magazine’s Sarah Allen.
