The world has two new coffee champions for 2024: World Brewers Cup Champion Martin Wölfl of Austria; and World Cup Tasters Champion Dionatan Almeida of Brazil.

Both champions were anointed over the weekend inside Chicago’s McCormick Place Convention Center during the annual expo of the Specialty Coffee Association, which drew in more than 17,000 coffee people over three days.

All three of the U.S. winners are moving on to compete for the world title this June at the World of Coffee trade show in Copenhagen, Denmark.
