Collections of Waikiki would like to congratulate Pete Licata in taking second place in the World Barista Championship in Bogata, Colombia. Pete is the coffee quality manager at Honolulu Coffee Co., and has previously been recognized for his wine-coffee creations.
The event, held on June 5, is the preeminent international coffee competition and strives to promote excellence in coffee and barista standards. Each year, contestants representing over 50 nations compete as they craft espressos, cappucinos, and signature drinks.
Congratulations again to Pete and his “fruit to cup,” which can be seen here: www.worldbaristachampionship.com
