We won four Swedish coffee championships in 2017
Between 22-25 February 2017, the SCAE Sweden Coffee Fest and this year's Swedish coffee championships took place. da Matteo won all four competitions we entered and in the competiotions where we had several competitors, we took all the top spots in the finals. We came home with four first prizes, two second prizes, two third prizes and a fourth prize. Filip, Albin, Steven, Clara, Markus, Gabbi and Christofer made all of us at da Matteo incredibly proud. They are fantastic baristas, but even more are they great colleagues and friends. They have polished each other's pitchers, sorted each other's coffee, carried each other's grinders, listened to each other's presentations and tasted tasted tasted each other's coffee - not just that weekend, but during several months of training.
da Matteo has been involved since the beginning of coffee championships - competed, judged, organized, helped set rules - in Sweden and internationally. Our involvement in the competitions has been fundamental to where we are today. These recent successes are a result of this engagement.
