It's been a whirlwind journey for Luca, who just six months ago, in May, clinched the 2023 Brewers Cup at Victoria Arduino in London. From there, he swiftly headed to Athens to compete in the World Championships, where he secured a remarkable 4th place. But the story doesn't end there; this week, at the Cafe Culture event in the London, Luca achieved something truly historic - becoming the first person in the UK to win the Brewers Cup championship twice, we couldn't be more delighted!
Back-to-Back Triumph: Luca's victory at the 2024 UK Brewers Cup Championship marks a rare and incredible achievement. Winning the competition for the second time in a row demonstrates not only his exceptional skill but also his unwavering commitment to the art of brewing coffee. It's a testament to his dedication and the tireless effort he invests in his craft.
A Remarkable Coffee: Luca's winning performance was fueled by a remarkable coffee, a Mandella varietal from Lot 6, sourced from Café Granja La Esperanza in Colombia. This coffee, with its unique characteristics and flavors, served as the canvas upon which Luca crafted his brewing masterpiece. His ability to coax out the coffee's best qualities is a testament to his deep understanding of the beans he works with.
Making History: Luca's win is not just a personal victory; it's a milestone in the UK's coffee history. No one has ever won the UK Brewers Cup championship twice before, making Luca a trailblazer in the world of brewing. His achievements inspire countless others to push the boundaries of their craft and aim for greatness.

With this remarkable victory, Luca's journey continues as he gears up for the World Championships in the USA next year. The world stage awaits, and we have no doubt that Luca will once again showcase his incredible talent and passion for coffee to the global coffee community.
