Matteo D'Ottavio World Brewers Cup First Round Performance

October 25, 2021

What an energetic, passionate, and inspiring first presentation by Matteo D'Ottavio (UK Brewing Champion) in the first round of the World Brewers Cup in Milan, 2021. Matteo has worked hard, together with his team at WatchHouse over the past year to perfect a next-level coffee experience. It was a pleasure to help Matteo with the perfect brewer to complement the rest of his routine and I wish him the best of luck for the rest of the competition.

In Matteo's presentation, he revealed the brewer we designed together for his competition - a unique competition tool made from a special Polycarbonate with the lowest thermal conductivity. Matteo wanted to optimise for the competition setting in order to increase heat retention during the early stages of the brew and optimise extraction. For a much more thorough explanation, please watch Matteo's routine in the video above and enjoy a master at work!

Thank you Matteo, for your trust and for including Orea in your journey - it's so amazing to see your hard work pay off.
