Vigo (Galicia, Spain) May 2019 - Quality Espresso, a leading company in the professional espresso machine sector, is set to take part in the XIII Edition of the Fórum Café Barista Championships, which will be held in the auditorium of the Fundación Obra Social Avanca in Vigo from the 16th-18th May, and will present its products to those present (professionals from the sector, roasters and baristas) in the Coffee Area, in the Sala Pilares.

Attendees will also be able to take part in demonstrations and test the new Futurmat Sensius model, a new machine designed for baristas, which is reliable, robust, boasts the latest technology and has a contemporary design inspired by the Italian avant-garde, as well as the new La Reale model, a premium machine which, staying true to Italian tradition, has a modern and elegant design reminiscent of the 50's, the decade during which the Gaggia brand gained prominence throughout the world and became the leading brand for professional espresso machines. The Q10 series grinder will also be on display, this being the fastest model on the market and the only one to offer three different settings: pre-grinding, instant grinding and manual grinding. 

Rubén Sanz, a coffee expert at Quality Espresso, will participate in the championship as the lead judge in the I Semifinal of the Barista Championship and as presenter in the II Commercial Blend Awards and I Speciality Blend Awards.

Quality Espresso invites all those present to visit it in the Sala Pilares and test its Sensius and La Reale machines. Here, a team of experts from Quality Espresso will be on hand to assist and advise.

It is through these types of events that Quality Espresso consolidates its position as a leading company in the sector. Quality Espresso is a company with over 65 years of history that encompasses tradition and innovation, and is present in more than 90 countries.
