Your 2011 World Barista Champion!!!!

The first WBC held in a producing country was history making in more ways than one. For the first time the WBC has produced a champion from a coffee producing country!

It may have been El Salvador’s first trip to the finals, but Alejandro Mendez didn’t show an ounce of nervousness, or any hint that it was too big a stage for him. And now, Alejandro is your 2011 World Barista Champion! Congratulations! Absolutely fantastic!

  1. Congratulations Alejandro, what a great achievement. You would be the most popular guy at the party’s for sure. I didn’t even realize they had a championship in this field. Just goes to show that doesn’t matter what your talent is, you can be recognized as a world champion. Brilliant stuff.

  2. what qualifies el salvador or disqualifies the US or Australia from being coffee-producing countries? no, really?
