April 16, 2015 (Elmsford, NY) — Today, Urnex Brands, LLC congratulates the nine baristas selected as Urnex Global Ambassadors for the 2015 World Barista Championship. We are thrilled that four of the six competitors in the final round represented Urnex, including Sasa Sestic, National Champion from Australia, who was crowned the 2015 World Barista Champion.
As part of the Ambassador Program, Urnex has sponsored Sasa to come to New York to tour the Urnex facility, collaborate on product development and training with our Marketing and R&D teams and enjoy New York City. We look forward to welcoming Sasa back to the United States.
