The 2013 global roster of barista champs is really somethin’, ain’t she? We’ve been stalking them on Facebook, compiling their likenesses in a series of photos, and adding their Twitter names to our daily schedule listicles, all in preparation for next week’s World Barista Championship event in Melbourne. You’ll see a cavalcade of this quick reference content from us posted throughout the week next week.

But before we set off on our long journey over hither and yon, we wanted to share with you the Facebook pics of some of this year’s World Barista Champs – some but not all, because not all of the champs are on Facebook! To make things more fun and digestible, we’ve put together these photos in a sing-a-long video of the national champs, in the tradition of the Animaniacs “50 State Capitals” song. Enjoy!’s impending coverage of the 2013 WBC is made possible by direct support from Nuova Simonelli and St. Ali / Sensory Lab.
