Urnex Ambassadors Are Off and Running

After kicking off at the World Barista Championship in Seattle last week, the Urnex Ambassador Program begins an active year with barista champions

Looking for a creative and unique way to support the national barista champions competing at the World Barista Championship in Seattle last weekend, Urnex Brands LLC developed a brilliant program wherein the espresso equipment cleaning product company provides support to the champions, while they in turn share their true stories of why they love using Urnex products. The program, called the Urnex Global Ambassador Program, included nine national champions represented in Seattle, among them, four finalists, and the man who would take top honors, Sasa Sestic of Australia.

As part of the Ambassador Program, Urnex has sponsored Sasa to come to New York to tour the Urnex facility, collaborate on product development and training with Urnex’s marketing and R&D teams, and enjoy New York City.

Company president Josh Dick says he and the whole Urnex team look forward to  working with all the other Urnex Ambassadors throughout the coming months as they collaborate to provide product feedback and have the opportunity to build relationships with Urnex distributors in their home countries.

The 2015 Urnex Global Ambassadors, and their ranking in the World Barista Championship in Seattle, are as follows:
