Welcome! We'll be updating this page with updates on Jill's time competing at the World Barista Championship in Milan, Italy, Oct. 23 - 26th. Freshest updates will always be at the top.
Thanks for following along! #goJillgoWBC2021
Ben and Jill have arrived in Italy! They'll spend the next few days picking up ingredients for her signature drink, milks for her milk coarse, getting over jet lag, and Jill has a practise day at a local shop. Jill competes on Saturday at 2pm local time, which is 6am Calgary time! We'll be sharing the livestream link here when it's available.
Jill has been running practise sets at National Cappuccino in the afternoons, and at our Fifth Ave location at night. Today she'll perform her set 3 different times, for groups of people who have volunteered to watch (and to try her real competition coffee - lucky them!). Jill has a few days left in Calgary of practise, before she leaves for Milan and continues her preparation there!
