Things kicked off on day 1 with an opening presentation from the president of Rimini Fiera, with SCAE Board members David, Cosimo and president Drewry joining him on stage where he gave a welcome speech.
David Veal, Executive Director said how he and SCAE were proud to have a strong present at their first visit to SIGEP in Rimini. Not only were we on hand to support the SCAE Italia chapter with membership, education and enquires, we also had a World of Coffee booth to help promote our show at the same venue in June this year!
Seminars organised by Annemarie Tiemes and UK AST Denise Hall ranged from ‘How to set up your own coffee shop.’ to ‘How to select the best specialty coffees for espresso making.’
Back at the competition arena, the hotly contested semi finals and finals of the 3 national competitions; Barista, Latte Art and Coffee In Good Spirits kept the SEGIP crowds enthrawled!
