WBC 2011

September 18th, 2009

Sparked by Cindy’s tweet about the WBC accepting Event Hosting proposals for 2011 I thought I’d quickly post about something I’d love to see:  WBC held in a producing country.

Hopefully a few of you reading support this – it would be no more expensive for travelling to than Japan was for most of the world.  It would allow unprecedented learning opportunities for visitors and baristas, and a great opportunity for a producing country to showcase its unique capabilities to the industry.

I am very aware that lots of people wanting something like this doesn’t create a proposal out of thin air, nor does it get that proposal accepted – but as an idea, surely many agree this would be exciting and a great progression for the competition.

Would love to hear people’s thoughts on the pros and cons, and any particular country you’d like to see host it.
