[01-10-2009] The Golden Portafilter: 4 championships in 1 day!
Under the name "The Golden Portafilter" the Belgian Coffee Championship has been presented for the first time as a big event on October 1st 2009 in the stylish San Marco Village located in Schelle.

More than 500 guests have witnessed a well organized event, which could become the place-to-be for everyone who wants to bring coffee to the consumer in a qualitative manner.

The Belgian division of the SCAE (Specialty Coffee Association Europe) and the BCE (Belgian Coffee Education) guaranteed the organization of 4 coffee competitions: cup-tasting, barista, latte art and coffee in good spirits. An international jury of 7 members has judged the creations in a professional manner. The nv Schuilenburg had the honor of supplying the Dalla Corte and Mahlkönig competition machines and took care of the complete technical organization.

For Cup-tasting : the first place went to Bert Van Wassenhove of  Caffènation in Antwerp. In only 1'13" he identified 7 correct cups. Bart van Sanden scored 7 correct cups in 2'46". Third place was taken by Bart Decraene of Delhaize with 7 correct cups in 3'20".

For Coffee in Good Spirits newcomer Jeroen De Corte took the first place. He is the bartender in jazzcafé Hopper in Antwerp and, together with his wife, runs his own cocktail- and cateringcompany "Frozen Vanilla". He has defeated Ronny Billemon of Everpure, who took the eighth place on the worldchampionship in Cologne2009.

For Latte Art: the candidates combine coffee with steamed milk. Within 8' the candidates have to make 2 identical creations three times by designing figures (hearts, tulips, rosetta’s) into the milk foam on the espresso. The first place was won by  François Knopes of Café Knopes situated Luxemburg. He is the young though yet experienced successor of world champion Peter Hernou. Second place was taken by Stéphane Dierinckx of Café Liégeois and Joël Morabito of coffee bar Natural Caffé in Brussels finished third.

For Barista finally, gold was won by Kenny Burssens of the restaurant Magma located in Antwerp. Kenny already has some experience in wine tasting competitions and surprised everyone by taking first place and thus the title at his first participation. Kenny works with Koffie Rombouts, who for this event selected a real competition coffee together with  Coffeeroots.
