The latest edition of Hostelco, held in Barcelona from October 23rd to 26th, was a great success with many wonderful visits from attendees and industry peers.
Compak had a significant presence with our Experience Coffee Cup area, which is the exclusive distributor of Wega, Astoria and Slayer in Spain. In addition to our existing product range were our latest innovations in the area of grinding by weight. Our new PK line of On Demand, weight based grinders drew immense interest among attendees and helped highlight Compak’s dedication to leading innovation in the grinder sector. We also partnered with the newly opened Black Remedy Coffee Bar Barcelona, which provided a spectacular catered offering... smoked meat sandwiches, homemade cakes, Nitro Cold Brew, and ales delighted the visitors, all accompanied by the best specialty coffees.
Compak also sponsored several championships held during the meeting organized by the Fórum del Café. Our colleague Marc Saña acted as judge at the XI National Barista Championship, while another member of the Compak team, Vanessa Pastrana, presented an E10 Conic Essential On Demand to the winner Javier Carrion, which was also the official grinder used during the competition.
The model R80 Compak was the official grinder used for two other competitions held during the fair: the first editions of the National Coffee Tasting Championship, and the Aeropress National Championship, whose winners were Csaba Bóka and Liz Ochoa respectively.
We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the winners of the various competitions and to thank all those who came by to say hello.
