    WBC - Con wins the world latte art comp!

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Con Haralambopolous from 7 Grams in Richmond is the new WORLD LATTE ART Champion.

    Con is well known at the Australian coffee competitions and in the Victorian championships this year he managed to trophy in all 3 categories - Barista, Latte Art and Cupping. *A huge effort and really shows his wide and expert coffee knowledge.

    In the Australian barista comp Latte Art, Con placed and then improved that in the re-run to take the Australian title and earn a trip to Copenhagen to compete on the world stage.

    ...and he WON!

    Well done Con, we all know how hard you work at this, blood, sweat, tears and 1000s of coffees and as a payback you are now THE WORLD CHAMPION. *I hope you are planning an extension to 7 Grams as boy are you guys and the La Marzocco are going to get busy!

    Well done and congrats.

    8-)

    Those that dont know where Cons cafe is:
    7 Grams, 505 Church St, Richmond, Vic.

    ...I suggest joining the queue now.
    ;)

    Congrats also to Carl Sara for making the finals again too, another regular at the pointy end of world competition.

    Syd; next time they should fly you over for photos!

    Very kind of the SCAA to keep on organising competitions for us to rack up trophies ;P

    Good onya, Con!

    I know that there will be a stampede to 7 Grams, but Im not sure when Con will be back from overseas ... he might be taking a bit of a holiday, so its probably worth waiting a week or two before banging his door down.

    Cheers,

    Luca

    A hearty congratulations to Con for his fantastic effort in winning the Worlds.

    A very seasoned competitor and to receive this Title is a testament to his true grit and determination.

    Quite a lot of Pacific Ocean representation in that list.

    Ask anyone that really knows about competitive spirit.

    In sport, in battle, or any field of human conflict, Aussies consistently punch above our weight class.

    Bloody well done Con, congratulations.

    I hope the punters are beating the front door of 7 grams down from tomorrow morning until the 12th of never.

    In the mean time, relax and savour the victory (and try to soak up a bit of Copenhagen).
