The Specialty Coffee Association released the final rankings of last week’s World Coffee Championship events in Taipei, Taiwan.

Held in conjunction with the Taiwan International Coffee Show, the three events held in Taipei were the World Coffee Roasting Championship, the World Latte Art Championship and the World Coffee in Good Spirits (CIGS) Championship.

World Coffee Events, the SCA-backed organizing body behind the global competition, operates seven World Coffee Championships each year.

Notably absent from the finalist standings of each of the three most recent competitions were women, who continue to be woefully under-represented in the world’s largest coffee competitions.

Here are the newest world coffee champions, with links to the final rankings in each competition.
