Congratulations, World Barista Champion 2010 Mike Phillips (USA)!
Thinking of buying a transit custom? As one of the best one-ton vans you can buy, the Transit Custom offers the practicality of short and long wheelbases with the performance of a 2.2-litre TDCi diesel engine.
I’ve just heard news from the results of the drawing for the order of performances during World Barista Championships 2010. Keith Loh, representing Singapore will be the FIRST PERFORMER on Day 2 of the event.
Just as we know that Keith is representing Singapore in London for this year’s World Barista Championship 2010, the result for WBC 2011 has just come to light. It will be held in Bogota, Colombia. Andrew Hetzel has the full report.
This is the video of Keith Loh’s (Oriole Cafe) winning performance during the Final Round of the Singapore National Barista Championship 2010. Keith went on to win the Championship and will be representing Singapore in the World Barista Championship held in London later this year.
Here’s a video of John’s performance at this year’s SNBC. Having participated in SNBC every year since 2007, John has been placed Runner Up in 2007, and Champion in 2008 and 2009. His latest WBC 2009 rank representing Singapore is #21.
I’ve been busy at work and I almost forgot about SNBC this week that I didn’t even have time to plan leave. Hope to see all of you there. Although SCA’s website didn’t specify the time, I’ve gotten word from one of the competitors that the final day on Saturday, 27 February will start at 11 am, and will end approximately at 4 pm. As Ben Ruane has pointed out in the comments below, SCA has updated their page with the schedule. As with all SNBC’s since 2007, the competition keeps getting tougher each year, thus raising the bar and hopefully, we will see more of a coffee culture in Singapore. Good luck to all the competitors, and we hope this year’s finalist will improve Singapore’s global standing to under #20.
And a shout-out to all the readers attending, free free to comment on this blog (not the facebook post) about the results or any other tidbits. Thanks in advance.

What I thought was the best signature drink from WBC 2009 Day One goes to Akihiro Okada from Japan.
He used a paintbrush to paint the insides of the martini glasses, his paint being the cherry syrup (someone, pls correct me.) Then again, aesthetics may prove misleading, as many a dark chocolate like naked pour have proven lemony beyond all recognition.
