Espresso Italiano Champion 2018

 
Espresso Italiano Champion is the barista competition organized by the Italian Espresso National Institute (Inei). In eleven minutes the competitors have to dial in the grinding and prepare four Italian espressos and four Italian cappuccinos. Two technical judges evaluate their perfomance and four sensory judges from the International Institute of Coffee Tasters (Iiac) blindly assess the quality of the espressos and of the cappuccinos.
