La Marzocco and partner brand Modbar, one of this year’s World Aeropress Championship sponsors, is happy to announce Elisa Urdich winner of the 2019 Italian Aeropress Championship!
Elisa, a coffee-passionate who runs a café in Treviso and was crowned Best Barista in Italy at the latest Barawards, made it to the top of this competition alongside Davide Mazzaferro and Giuseppe Franti, earning a ticket to London to take part in the “WAC! grand finale (November 2019).
The Italian AeroPress Championship – which was hosted by La Marzocco last Friday, June 28th, at the company’s office and showroom in Milan – involved 41 competitors, over 60 spectators, multiple sponsors (BWT, DM Italia, Edo Barista, E&B Lab) and a jury of diverse coffee and F&B experts: Chiara Bergonzi (founder of Lot Zero), Enrico Wurm (Product Improvement Manager at La Marzocco), Katerina Logvinova (Brand Ambassador at Elephant Gin), Maurizio Valli (co-founder of Bugan Coffee Lab), Michael Gardenia (fondatore di Fusillo Lab) e Nadia Rossi (journalist at Bargiornale, media partner of the event).
The full day program offered fresh and fun content: morning Aeropress practice sessions, espresso making-and-tasting on the Modbar, vegan latte and ice-cream demos, Aeropress movie screening, Linea BBQ and evening aperitif with live music.
The team at La Marzocco and Modbar wish to thank all those who attended and made this time yet another stimulating gathering and opportunity to build coffee culture and community.
