Urnex / Puro Caff Named World Barista Championship Cleaning Product Sponsor

LONG BEACH, Calif. (December 19, 2008) - The World Barista Championship (WBC) has selected Urnex Brands Inc. / Puro Caff Group as the competition's official Cleaning Product Sponsor for 2009 - 2011.

Once every 3 years, leading coffee industry suppliers vie for the prestigious opportunity to have their products featured as the official tools used by national barista champions at the annual World Barista Championship. All candidates considered for sponsorship must meet exacting technical standards set and tested by the WBC, but only one supplier from each category may be named an official sponsor.

At the next World Barista Championship this April in Atlanta, barista champions representing over 56 countries will compete for the title of world's top coffee maker in front of a live audience of several hundred spectators and thousands of online viewers.
