Vienna the coffee capital

From 13th to 15th June 2012 Vienna is hosting the SCAE World of Coffee event – fitting for the city which claims to offer the best coffee in the world.

The event, which promises to be the premier speciality coffee gathering in Europe in 2012, takes place over three days and includes a major trade show and the coveted World Barista Championship, along with the World Brewers Cup, the World Cup Tasters Championship, and the World Cezve/Ibrik World Championship.

The vision of the Speciality Coffee Association of Europe is to promote a ‘better world of coffee’ that will generate greater pleasure and prosperity for everyone involved in the speciality coffee sector, from farm to coffee shop.

With more than 50 countries competing and an expected 12,000 plus visitors from the global coffee community the event is not to be missed by coffee lovers.

The Coffee Diploma Workshop Programme will  also provide visitors with a choice of Level 1 and Level 2 courses that can be completed throughout the event, all under one roof.

SCAE’s Austrian Chapter will also be hosting special events including a Welcome Reception and a traditional celebration for competing baristas, along with the much anticipated barista party.

Dr Michael Häupl Mayor of Vienna has pledged his support to World of Coffee 2012 as patron of the event. He said, "We are delighted that SCAE is to host an event of this scale in Vienna. Given the long-standing history with coffee that we enjoy, it is very fitting that this World class event should take place here. We are very much looking forward to welcoming all of the Foodservice professionals and the Barista community from home and abroad to our city."

The exhibition takes place at the Messe Wien Congress & Exhibition Centre and tickets start at 15 Euro.
