The search for the Peru’s official representative happened during the third Peru National Barista Championship on November 25 thru the 29th, 2013, In Lima, Peru.
Scott Conary spent 2 days before the Competition working with & certifying judges from the Country & around the world so they were prepared to correctly assess the Champion who will go on to represent Peru in the World Barista Championship (WBC), to be held in Rimini, Italy this year – June 10-12.
Now on its 13th year, the World Barista Championship is considered the most prestigious coffee-making competition in the world and has even been called the “Olympics of Coffee.”
Competing in three elimination rounds, contestants have to create 12 coffee beverages,
consisting of four espressos, four cappuccinos, and four signature drinks, within a 15 minute time frame.

The Carrboro Bicycle Coalition has recognized the Open Eye Cafe as Bicycle Friendly!
We were the winner of a bike rack hand-crafted by Leo Gaev Metalworks, which has been installed in the front of the shop.

This new rack, when used optimally, can accommodate up to 12 more bikes, making our total bike spots more than 25, not including unofficial spots.
We provide employees and guests a secure place to park their bikes and promote bicycling in a variety of creative ways…Because of this, we are designated a Bicycle Friendly Business !!!

The committee selected Open Eye because we really utilize bike parking for our employees and customers; are in a part of town with high bike traffic volumes; and are in a part of town that will fill a gap in the broader network of Chapel Hill-Carrboro bike parking.
