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!
