Portraits Of The 2013 World Barista Championship Finalists

As we start the process of working through our post-Australia malaise – sickness! time zone affectedness! laptop replacements! exhaustion! – we felt it prudent to share with you one of our favorite sets of images from the 2013 World Barista Championship. These photos were taken by Rob Dunne, one half of DunneFrankowski, just moments after each competitor’s WBC Finals run. They are candid snapshots, illustrative not of how these men compete, but who they really are.

We’ve still got so much content to share with you from Melbourne, including in-depth original essays on each Finals routine and a multi-feature city-spanning tour of our favorite Melbourne cafes, but here, right now, just look at that slideshow up above. Colin Harmon with his bottle of coffee stout, Pete Licata looking as though he’s about to execute a jail break, William Hernandez with his yellow felt flower…these images are golden, and couldn’t wait another moment.
