World Champion Barista Heads to Milaidhoo Maldives this January

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]This spring, boutique five star resort, Milaidhoo Maldives, promises that every cup of coffee served in its beautiful ocean front restaurants is perfect.    To ensure consistent delivery of flawless coffee, the newly opened resort brings Fritz Storm – ex world-champion barista – to the island in January to demonstrate the art of delivering the perfect cup of coffee.

During his stay at Milaidhoo Fritz will hold coffee tasting classes with the guests, as well as an informal seminar introducing coffee, its history and its culture.  He’ll highlight the vital role of the right beans, water and milk in making the perfect cup.  Guests can also take barista classes where they’ll learn how to make coffee and try their hand at latte art. The tastings, classes and seminars are all complimentary to Milaidhoo guests on the 7th and 8th January 2017.

Not just another five star resort in the Maldives, Milaidhoo likes to do things differently; calling its singular style ‘reinvented luxury’.  Fritz Storm’s visit is part of its commitment to offering authentic and meaningful experiences.

To promote Fritz’ visit, Milaidhoo Maldives is offering coffee lovers the chance to win a three-night stay for two on a half board basis.  All contestants need to do is take a creative picture of their coffee, post to Instagram tagging @Milaidhoo, and also use the hashtag #MilaidhooMoment.  Looking for the most creative shot, Fritz will judge the entries when he visits and a winner will be announced on Thursday 12th January.

The prize is: a three-night stay for two adults, on a half board basis, between 1 May 2017 and 20 December 2017. Villa is subject to availability. Terms and conditions apply.  More details are on the resort’s blog page:

Originally from Denmark, Fritz Storm became the World Barista Champion in 2002, which gave him a unique opportunity to travel the world and learn more about coffee production, selection, quality and cultures. He’s been working with coffee-connoisseurs from all over the world through competitions, training events and origin visits ever since. Fritz says “It is a luxury to be able to be a part of a global coffee-network like this, to share all this passion with fellow people”.

Fritz’ goals are to improve the quality and knowledge of coffee around the world, taking into consideration the local cultures, history and profession; and to give people a coffee experience through better quality and understanding.
