Tiga Barista Indonesia di Ajang Kopi Dunia

Sabtu (25/6) akhir pekan kemarin, World Barista Championship 2016 di Dublin, Irlandia resmi berakhir. Indonesia berhasil mengamankan peringkat ke-15 melalui barista Yoshua Tanu.

Selain di World Barista Championship 2016, Indonesia juga turut serta dalam World Brewers Cup 2016 serta World AeroPress Championship 2016. Ryan Wibawa, barista sekaligus Coffee Master Starbucks,  mengamankan posisi ke-23 di World Brewers Cup. Sementara itu, Prawira ‘Edo’ Adhiguna dari Hungrybird Coffee, Bali, berhasil masuk ke babak semifinal World Aeropress Championship.

World Barista Championship & World Brewers Cup merupakan bagian dari World Coffee Events. Sejak tahun 2011, World Coffee Events mengusung misi untuk merangkul komunitas specialty coffee melalui ajang-ajang perlombaan di lebih dari 60 negara. Specialty Coffee Associations of Europe and America (SCAE & SCAA) memegang lisensi untuk semua acara yang dinaungi World Coffee Events. Penyisihan untuk World Barista Championship berlangsung di tingkat lokal maupun regional.

Yoshua Tanu, yang sehari-harinya meracik kopi di Common Grounds, sudah dua berturut-turut menjuarai Indonesia Barista Championship sejak tahun 2014. Di ajang kompetisi barista paling bergengsi ini, masing-masing barista diminta menyediakan tiga jenis minuman: espresso, cappuccino, dan espresso signature drink, menggunakan biji kopi pilihan mereka sendiri.

World Brewers Cup, di sisi lain, menguji keahlian barista dalam teknik filter dan seduh manual (manual brewing). Selain kedua ajang tersebut, World Coffee Events juga menghelat rangkaian kompetisi World Latte Art, World Cofee In Good Spirits, World Cup Tasters, & World Coffee Roasting. Sementara itu, World AeroPress Championship diadakan secara independen oleh Tim Varney & Tim Williams dari Australia. Ajang ini mengeksplorasi kepiawaian barista dalam menggunakan alat seduh AeroPress.

World Barista Championship tahun ini dimenangkan oleh Berg Wu dari Taiwan. World Brewers Cup oleh Tetsu Katsuya dari Jepang, dan World AeroPress Championship oleh barista asal Polandia.

Unfortunately didn't make it to final. Congrats for Poland for winning it and France runner up, both coolest contestant ever, really humble and I didn't see them practice or bringing "suitcase" full of equipment. Poland come from 2nd biggest qualifier with 108 contestant (1st China , 3rd Indonesia). Saw him just re-register earlier alone with no entourage 😆😆😆 French guy is just home barista do not have any cafe or working in the Industry even, he just love to make coffee for his friend and family. So happy able to chat with him before and during the competition. Both guy Instagram remains unknown until now 😂😂😂 #Repost @vicecoffeeinc ・・・ Well done Poland!!!! WOOP!! 🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆
