Here’s a happy story. Becoming a coffee expert takes steadfast dedication and a deep love for and understanding of coffee. Recently, Starbucks Corp hosted its second Annual Barista Championship 2017 in Taiwan to recognize and reward their partners (baristas) for their coffee passion and talent. Among the 16 partners from 15 Asian markets who competed against hundreds of fellow partners, family and friends for the grand title, was Geetu Mohnani, a local girl from Delhi who represented India at this competition. She won many hearts with her impressive beverage crafting skills and effervescent style and brought home the third-place trophy for the country. She was the only female Starbucks partner to make it to the top three at the championship in Taiwan. And now it gets even better – she has the privilege of flying down to Seattle to visit the Starbucks coffee hub. Yes, where it all began.
