All-Stars Online and All-Stars x Barista Guild are returning for a second season, with six top-ranking World Coffee Championship (WCC) competitors coming to your screen twice-weekly, beginning next Tuesday, October 20. The All-Stars program celebrates some of the best coffee competitors in the world in a fun, engaging format, which we are adapting to bring directly to you.
Each week will focus on a different All-Star from the WCC portfolio, with the World Barista Championship, World Brewers Cup, World Latte Art Championship, World Coffee Roasting Championship, and Cezve/Ibrik Championship featured this season.
The program is divided into two parts: All-Stars Online and All-Stars x Barista Guild. 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.
All-Stars x Barista Guild follows later the same week, where members of the Barista Guild will be sitting down for an informal chat and coffee with the All-Stars, digging into more detail about each All-Star’s life, their coffee careers, and more.

Irvine Quek, 2019 World Latte Art Champion – Malaysia
