2016 saw only one collaboration with the Barista Guild of Europe, which took place in Antwerp on April 26. This year’s event focused on two major BGE initiatives, which centre on career paths and providing opportunities for sensory experiences both inside and outside of coffee.
Each speaker gave a 20 minute presentation, which was followed by a 20 minute Q&A with the audience. Speakers also took part in panel discussions, led by Tamper Tantrum co-hosts Steve & Colin.
About Barista Guild of Europe: Formed in 2014, Barista Guild of Europe (BGE) is led by a working group of SCAE dedicated to developing the role of the barista within Europe.
