WCC Certified Judges
Judges are a vital component of the World Coffee Championships, providing a service and skill essential to the success of each championship. In six of the seven championships, WCC Certified Judges evaluate performances by competitors according to the Rules and Regulations for that championship. Each championship has a different set of evaluation criteria and a different mix of judges on the judging panel.
