The 10-year-old Nordic Barista Cup has been canceled for 2014. Since its beginnings as a small-scale barista competition, NBC has grown to become one of the most highly regarded knowledge-sharing events among coffee professionals throughout the world.
Current NBC Chairman Jens Nørgaard yesterday made the following announcement on the NBC website yesterday, saying that the event would no longer run in its “current form:”
Thank you for supporting NBC over the last 10 years.
As our mission statement is fulfilled, we have decided to close down NBC in its current form.
There will not be a NBC event in 2014.
We are working on a new format for the event and will keep you posted.
Here on the NBC site you can find all information from earlier years. Knock your self out!
This is also where we’ll keep you posted on what will be the new NBC format to come.
Keep on sharing knowledge and remember to be together, learn together and act together.
It’s been great 10 years-thanks-TAK.
Chairman, Nordic Barista Cup Assn.
