ODK Ambassador, Marco Poidomani, is the Italian Coffee Champion...
ODK Ambassador and experienced barista Marco Poidomani has been named the Italian Barista Champion of Coffee in Good Spirits 2019 for the second time.
Taking place at Sigep in Rimini Marco pulled out all the stops in his presentation. With drinks served in lava goblets on steaming ice to represent a smoking Mount Etna to a space inspired cocktail served in a glass shaped like a space capsule, floating on a magnetic platform to illustrate zero-gravity.
The judges and the audience were wowed by not only the drinks he made but also the story behind the presentation and the expert technique demonstrated on stage. Here is what Marco had to say about the experience in an interview with Comunicaffe:
“I am very happy because first of all it is a personal victory that I dedicate to my wife and my children. Now the world is waiting for me and a new project: to divulge in Italy the fascinating discipline of Coffee in Good Spirits involving young barista to approach this discipline. I especially thank my coach Andrea Lattuada and Caffè Moak. And of course the sponsors who contributed to the preparation of my race: ODK; Mazzarella liqueurs; 9 bars; Moak People Training; Area 3; Made fruit; Emporio Uniform; Scisma lab “.
Marco will now go on to represent Italy at the world final in Berlin, Germany June 2019. Good luck from your friends at ODK Marco!
