Baratza is not attending the World Coffee Event in Rimini, but we are delighted to know some of the special people who are using our grinders at the event! We hope it will be a super successful one for them!

Thanks to support from our UK distributor, CoffeeHit, US Brewers Cup Champion – Todd Goldsworthy is grinding with a Forté!  CoffeeHit were able to get a 220v Forté to Todd and he’d brought his burr set with him from the US.  Todd is the Coffee Guru and educator with Klatch Coffee in Upland, CA. For his competition presentation, he pre-ground his coffee. Catch his excellent presentation here.  Amazing effort and work went to getting all the components together for his presentation and a large measure of water science too!

Despite issues with Italian customs, we got Fortes to our new Norwegian distributor KAFFAButikk as the show opened this morning – phew! They are at the KAFFA/Collaborative Coffee Source booth in The Village, doing lots of cupping and brewing! “The Village is a show within the show, consisting of small roofed market tables showcasing high quality professional products and services”, says World Coffee Events.

FortéBGs are paired again with Curtis’ cool new under counter brewer, the Seraphim on Cafe Imports booth in The Village. The Seraphim was the 2014 Best New Product winner at SCAA!
