Barista 2013 - Rasmus / Coffee Collective at Torvehallerne

We’re very happy and proud to say that yesterday Rasmus Gamrath, manager of Coffee Collectives coffee shop in Torvehallerne, won the Danish Barista Championship!

The presentation was centered around Rasmus’ experiences of engaging customers in atypical setting of a Food Market (Torvehallerne), where people come for gastronomic experiences and not necessarily just coffee. In the past year and a half Rasmus has done an outstanding job in engaging people who never experienced really great quality coffee before. He used those experiences as a basis for his presentation.

The four sensory judges were served a single origin espresso from the Kieni coop in Nyeri, Kenya. This is an amazingly aromatic and lively cup with clear black currant aromas. Those aromas also shined through in his cappuccinos, which becomes almost candy-like. His signature drink included a filter brew of a lighter roast of the Kieni (brewed on Kalita Wave), tonic water and the Kieni espresso – showcasing how the flavour is altered through different impressions beforehand.

Go taste – best coffee around
