After the first round when the Semifinalist was announced, I was happy to see how much progress we have made. We could see El Salvador, Colombia, Costa Rica and Guatemala fighting with skillful countries as: USA, Japan, Australia, United Kingdom, Spain, Korea, Netherlands and Greece.
Then it just got better when the Finalist were: USA, Australia, Japan, Spain, United Kingdom and El Salvador. When they competed one did the best and shined, I can tell you all are good, but one is stunning and it is Alejandro Mendez from El Salvador.
I congratulate all the 53 countries that challenged themselves during the World Barista Competition.
