How I won the World Barista Championship, an interview with Agnieszka Rojewska.

As most of you that will read this already know by now the World Barista Championship was held in Amsterdam earlier this year. For us, it is one of the highlights of the coffee year, always a great source of inspiration and motivation. I think competitions have that effect on people and it's fair to say that the competitors this year set the bar very, very high.

Best of them all and newly crowned World Barista Champion 2018 was Agnieszka Rojewska, Barista Champion of Poland. We here at April want to understand more about her process and what was behind her victory so we asked if she would be interested in doing an interview with us and she said yes.

Instead of starting with the obvious question, "how does it feel to be the best barista in the world?", we will get to that later, I want to know when and why did you decide to start to compete in coffee?
