The event took place in collaboration with a.o.i studio (events agency), Fisher Coffee (coffee bean sponser), BlackWaterIssue (media partner), inviting professional baristas – interested in participating in the World Coffee in Good Spirit Championship – as well as local café owners, coffee lovers from the region and so on. The judges were a selected group of industry professionals: Jeremy Zhang (founder of M2M COFFEE, 2014 Chinese Barista Championship) , King Chan (Mellower Coffee, championship trainer), Zhian Ouyang (MONIN China, mixologist, author of The Art of the Cocktail). Each of the preliminary competition involved 12 baristas – and the top 4 from each preliminary competition had the opportunity to join the final challenge on October 15th, 2016 at UNDEFINE, Shanghai.
