America’s best barista and co-owner of Onyx Coffee Lab, Andrea Allen, won second place in this year’s World Barista Championship (WBC) competition. 

  • Challenge: The WBC was in Milan, Italy this year and there were over 50 competitors from around the world, each representing their countries in a 15 minute presentation. 
  • Journey: Andrea has done coffee since she graduated high school and hasn’t looked back. She competed in the US Championship 5 times, winning in 2020. Then taking on the WBC, she got to show judges and the world that coffee culture is about us, the coffee drinkers.
