World Coffee Events makes 2018 competition rule changes

Gender-neutral language and competitor qualification explanations are some of the “minor” rules and regulation changes World Coffee Events (WCE) has released for the 2018 World Brewers Cup, World Cup Tasters and World Coffee Roasting Championships.

Released on 14 June, WCE says the final changes for this year’s world competitions have been made to “keep them consistent with other competition documents”.
