London 2018

From the 12-15 April 2018, 24 of the world’s best baristas battled it out for the title of Coffee Master London 2018. In a searingly close final, Poland’s Agineszka Rojewska just edged out Rob Clarijs of The Netherlands to take the grand title. It was all about making history: Agineszka as the first ever female to win in London, and Rob the first competitor ever to score a perfect 10/10 for his signature drink.

 

The next Coffee Masters will be held in New York from the 12-14 October 2018. For now, check out the London Coffee Masters 2018 contenders and their signature drinks:
