SCAE's Annemarie Tiemes reports that the Coffee Diploma Workshops were a great
success too. Delivered in Korean by Steven Kil, Roasting Level 1 and Barista Level 1 were a huge success.
Tibor Hajcsunk, SCAE's Regional Co-ordinator for Hungary said, 'We are extremely happy with our competitors. Ákos Orosz, is a first time competitor at both national and world level. Ákos is a working mixer, who makes cocktails every day. I think he enjoyed the whole competition very much'.
