Welcome to Day Two of the 2019 World Barista Championships here in Boston, Massachusetts! We’re really into the meaty part of the extended-weekend calendar, with both Round One, Day Two of the World Barista Championship and Round One, Day One of the World Brewers Cup taking center stage(s) today. We’ll have a sum total of 50 competitors today between the two competitions, making it the most action-packed day of the week.

We can’t wait to see how these competitions shake out. Follow along with us right here at Sprudge Live for coverage all weekend long, and be sure to follow @SprudgeLive on Twitter and @Sprudge on Instagram for coverage all weekend long.
