Taste Challenge winner

11/07/2018

Sonia Carvalho, head of hot beverages at Compass Group UK & Ireland, is the winner of the European Coffee Expo’s Taste Challenge.

Sponsored by BRITA, the Taste Challenge invited visitors to the show to identify six samples in a blind tasting. Carvalho, who recently achieved her AST (Authorised SCA Trainer) status, was the only person to correctly identify all six samples.

CEO of Quinic Events, organisers of European Coffee Expo and owners of Coffee Business World, John Bednall presented Carvalho with her certificate and prize last week in London.

Carvalho told Coffee Business World: “I loved taking part in the Taste Challenge. I thought it was a great attraction at the show and I’m looking forward to seeing it at the show again next year.”

Riccardo Alesso, Bewleys
