        ...watching the Cup Tasting semis live now.
        Alf is such a great MC.

        I notice the new black lined cupping cups to "fix" last years problem.

        Not sure who the cup sponsor is... it was ACF (FAC) but these are a different shape (taller).

        edit:

        Local lad Georg Branny from Austria got through to the final with a slow and steady 7 out of 8 on 7 minutes 34 seconds.  The same technique that got him into the semis.

        Cory Andreen from Germany, Kim Ossenblok from Spain and Tassos from Greece are the others that make the top 4 final.

          A company called notNeutral is a WBC sponsor. Could it be them?

            Well, if the comp is hosted in Austria, and Switzerland is next door....I guess this could be true.

              I did see some banner ads for dAncap running too... might be their cups?

              I just watched Fabrizio from Mexico. Sig drink was an infusion of chaff, a tea made from coffee leaf and an espresso on top. Seriously unique!

                    Woo hoo

                    Zoltan Kis from Hungary just won the ibrik world Championship.
                    (hes a CoffeeSnob member too!)

                    I competed with 3 of this years competitors last year... Zoltan from Hungry, Havva from the UK and Turgay from Turkey so was hoping one of them would take the crown. All 3 were good people with a huge passion for coffee.

                        Look what I found on the World Coffee Events front page...

                        My ibrik setup from Maastricht last year!

                        It looks a whole lot cleaner there than it does today at the Snobbery. ;D

                              Zoltan just passed this on...

                              [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epfvlv_P7wE[/media]

                              Zoltans dad filmed the world championship winning performance.

                              This is a very modern take on a traditional brewing method. Double filtered aeropress ran through a cooling tube for the cold coffee section... nice!

                              Its a pity that WCE didnt film all the competition. Maybe next year they will?
