Best Barista, Troels Overdal Poulsen of Copenhagen carried 12 liters of fresh, whole milk from his native Denmark to Seattle in beating five other finalists winning the sixth annual World Barista Championship.

The contestants competed in an against-the-clock competition that required each barista to make four espressos, four cappuccinos and four “signature” drinks in just 15 minutes. They were also allowed 15 minutes to set up and clean up, and were judged in part on cleanliness.
