Juges – European, Middle Eastern and African Bean-to-Bar Competition 2021-22

Gezien ons streven naar transparantie publiceren we de namen van de juryleden voor elke wedstrijd. (Van juryleden die daarvoor toestemming hebben gegeven.)

Elke wedstrijd wordt gejureerd door een panel van experts, voedseljournalisten, sommeliers en banketbakkers, onder wie de namen op de onderstaande lijst. De wedstrijd wordt overzien door leden van onze internationale Grand Jury, die speciaal naar elke wedstrijd gaan.

We bedanken onze juryleden voor hun harde werk, inclusief degenen die niet op de lijst staan. U vindt de volledige lijst winnaars in onze ‘Rounds & results’-sectie.
