The king of Italian coffee is Greek

The king of Italian coffee is Greek: Giannis Magkanas, 24 years old, graduates as a champion successfully passing the semi-final and final phases of the Espresso Italiano Champion 2015 championship, organised by the Italian Espresso National Institute (INEI).

Despite his young age, Giannis Magkanas has been active for several years in the coffee industry. After studying at the Essse Caffè training centre, he now works for Essse Caffè Greece within the Quality Assurance and Training departments. “In Greece having an Italian Espresso is a very common thing, – he declares – Greeks love Italian coffee as it is both complex and balanced”.

“It is truly positive for the Italian coffee industry that the winner of the Espresso Italian Champion 2015 is a young Greek man – commented the President of INEI Paolo Nadalet – This represents a symbol of the vitality of our product which is able to keep on fascinating professionals and consumers well beyond the Italian borders”.

Most of all, Espresso Italiano Champion keeps on being an important educational event. “The competition is and must remain an important moment of comparison between professionals, a push to do better and better – declared the General Secretary of INEI Luigi Odello – As of this year we have seen many excellent professionals and the level of the competition has further increased as compared to last year’s edition”.
