World Coffee Events in Vienna is much, much more than just the World Barista Championship. The showroom floor is now open, drawing exhibitors from around the world – including many Sprudge sponsors such as La Marzocco, Urnex, Unic, Wilbur Curtis Co. and more – along with a whole host of world-class cuppings and other assorted avenues of specialty coffee appreciation. There’s lots of other competitions going on, too, and you can follow them all on Livestream.

In addition to these events, there’s a series of lectures from some of international specialty coffee’s best and brightest being presented under the banner of Tamper Tantrum Live. You can watch TTL here via Livestream, and check out scheduled presenters including Michael Phillips (Handsome Coffee Roasters), Tim Wendelboe (his own eponymous company), Chris Baca (Verve Coffee Roasters), and David Nigel Flynn (Frog Fight).

It’s a good time to be in Vienna.
