Here Are Your 2019 World Coffee Champions

Wow. Just… Wow. It’s been an action-packed four days of coffee competition here in Boston, Massachusetts for the 2019 World Coffee Championships. We started on Thursday with just south of 100 coffee professionals between the World Barista Championship and World Brewers Cup, before winnowing that list down to 12—six in each competition—then again down to two.

Jooyeon Jeon of South Korea and Jia Ning Du of China, the World Barista Champion and World Brewers Cup Champion, respectively.

We’ll be taking a closer look at these two new and incredibly deserving champions in the upcoming week over on Sprudge, but for now let’s take a look at the final standings for the 2019 World Barista Championship and World Brewers Cup.
