It has been a long few months leading up to the WBC. Mikael would like to thank: Everyone who has worked so hard behind the scenes, from my closest friends and family, the roastery team, my colleagues, coaches, the people who made my milk, the Specialty Coffee Association of Indonesia, and the Barista Guild of Indonesia. I have the easy job of pushing buttons on stage. These people were the ones who were so selfl ess in helping me get up there. LIVE FROM BOSTON PHOTO BY PAIGE HICKS
