Edit – 1 pm BST, June 29: This post has been updated with the new launch dates for Season One.
Edit – 3 pm BST, June 9: WCE had originally planned to host the first episode of All-Stars Online event today, but given the serious and important conversations happening right now on anti-Blackness and anti-racist work, we thought it most appropriate to keep the focus on those discussions and postpone this more light-hearted event to another day.
To follow those conversations, please head to the @baristaguild & @sca_us Instagram accounts. The first episode of All-Stars x Barista Guild will also be postponed — more information on updated launch dates for both features coming soon.
All-Stars from the World Coffee Championships are coming to your screens in two interactive features this June — All-Stars Online and All-Stars x Barista Guild! The All-Stars program celebrates some of the best competitive coffee makers in the world in fun, engaging formats, which we are adapting to bring directly to you online.
Each week we’ll focus on a different All-Star, kicking off on June 30 with 2019 World Barista Championship Finalist, Mikael Jasin on All-Stars Online. All-Stars Online brings all the best features from the in-person All-Stars events — drinks challenges, interactive polls, and the chance to connect with the All-Stars and learn more about their careers. You can stream All-Stars Online here from 8pm CST / 1pm BST / 5am PDT on June 30. Add a reminder to your calendar here.
All-Stars x Barista Guild follows on Thursday, July 2, where the Barista Guild will be sitting down, grabbing a coffee, and digging into more detail about each All-Star’s life, their coffee careers, and more on the Barista Guild Instagram account.
We’ll be featuring six All-Stars this season, each with an episode of All-Stars Online and All-Stars x Barista Guild. We’re excited to reveal more about the All-Stars joining us this season. You can find more information about the program, including a schedule here.
