The aroma of coffee is spreading more and more throughout the SIGEP halls. It is now officially part of the name of SIGEP (International Exhibition dedicated to Artisan Gelato, Pastry and Bakery Production and the Coffee sector, being held at Fiera di Rimini from 21st to 25th January 2017 and organized by Italian Exhibition Group), the coffee sector features increasing attention being paid to this important product chain.
Only SIGEP manages to propose such a complete range of contests, with all seven barista championships dedicated to coffee and valid for the international circuit of World Coffee Events. At Fiera di Rimini, dozens of baristas selected from all over Italy will compete for the titles at the Italian Barista Championship, Italian Latte Art Championship, Italian Coffee In Good Spirits Championship, Italian Brewers Cup Championship, Italian Cup Tasting Championship, Italian Ibrik Championship and Italian Coffee Roasting Championship.
Two areas will be fitted out for the championships, in the South Foyer and Hall D1, and both will have live streaming broadcast coverage: the spotlight will be on the Italian finals of the various speciality contests dedicated to the coffee world, to designate the 7 winners who will represent Italy worldwide. These are the most eagerly awaited contests on the prestigious international World Coffee Events circuit.
Moreover, every day at SIGEP, in the Brew Bar & Espresso Bar area (Hall D1) it will be possible to taste espresso coffee and coffees made using pourover, chemex, aeropress and French press systems, which correspond to the respective instruments used to prepare the extremely popular beverage. Meetings and conferences are also scheduled with the international Coffee Community’s opinion leaders.
SIGEP 2017 will also host the announcement of the country hosting the next edition of Barista & Farmer, the first talent show dedicated to the promotion of the culture of excellent coffee.
