Things to take home from World of Coffee Amsterdam |
Metaphorically speaking that is. Only thing we actually took home to the Moose Mansion is Perfect Moose and its smart pitcher gang. And samples. Lots of them…to start testing, tasting and indulging the Moose with new flavours. After 3 days of continuous foaming and pleasantly surprised barista eyes, our boy deserves it. #WOC2018…it was a blast!
Moose a Zuma
Winner Best New Product Awards tried and tested | In the category of Specialty Beverage Stand Alone, the turmeric Chai from Zuma Drinks was this year’s top runner. All pure & fair-trade ingredients, to be combined as dairy, vegan or vegetarian drinks…right up Moose’s street we thought. So why not give it a go.
We used dairy milk to moose up the Zuma Chai Latte. If you want a vegetarian or vegan version, coconut milk would be our number one choice (steam up in green smart pitcher). Result? A mild, foamy blend with hints of vanilla, orange and ginger. The typical yellow of the root also adds that visual extra. Poured like a charm, direct ticket to Chai Heaven.

Lex Wenneker (the Netherlands) played a stunning homegame in Amsterdam and became second. Third is Mathieu Theis (Switzerland), fourth Michalis Katsiavos (Greece). Fifth place went to Cole Torode (Canada) and sixth John Gordon (New Zealand). What a line-up. Congratulations! #WBC2018
Wowing at the WOC
New product intro’s | With just under 11.000 professionals from across Europe and around the globe, the SCA driven event World of Coffee Amsterdam was just the place for several brands to introduce their innovations to the world. Thank you all visitors to warmly welcome Perfect Moose Jack, the stand alone smart foamer which steams up your liquid of choice into the smoothest microfoam.
