Agenda Update

Very quiet in blog land. It's been awhile I read an article online that was worth mentioning.

Meanwhile we're standing at the doors of September and a lot of activity.

Monday September 7th we go to Mechelen for some good old 'regional' Barista Championships. Roeland has to defend our colours and this is going to be a huge task I you see also Melanie, Stefaan and François are there.
In between Louis Donck. Very interested how this coffee roaster/cupping champ is going to perform in such a specialised discipline as a Barista CC.

And special attention for Isabelle Verschraegen of Or Gent. She's been training with us and that was very promising.

  1. Stefaan Behaege
  2. Melanie Nunens
  3. Louis Donck
  4. Kathleen Serdons
  5. Isabelle Verschraegen
  6. François Knopes

  7. Irma Sinagic
  8. Hanna Kaulalenco
  9. Fred Cristinelli
  10. Kenny Burssens
  11. Chakamol Supho
  12. Renoto Bogglière
  13. Roeland Lenaerts
  14. 2 or 3 Natural Barista's
Best of this list are going for the title October 1st at the San Marco Village, Boomsesteenweg A12.

And best 3 of the best perform that evening for the title.
It's going to be busy and more expensive than last year, but this way our National Rep will has some more experience for the world championships. Last year Melanie only had 15 minutes of experience and that's not enough of course.

September 15 we see Bird participating at the Semis of the Latte Art Championships. 8 minutes for 2 machiato's, 2 cappuccino and 2 creative drinks.
The best 3 Latte artists also go to the San Marco Village October 1. Exciting.

One of our Barista's at Caffenation gave birth to a baby!!
Congrats Fanny and hopefully a good recovery and soon back to pull some good old shots at Hopland. We miss you.

Today I'm going to Bodum to see their newest stuff.

Tomorrow I'm going to order my first Aeropress delivery. After a disappointing performance Friday we had some very sweet and flowery Yirgacheffe yesterday at Hopland. And as always : super duper clean!
I want to start doing home brewing classes with these beauties in October or the latest November.
