The Hugh Jackman of Coffee

This picture was posted by the World Barista Champion, Pete Licata with the caption, "Last night Phuong Tran met Hugh Jackman at the winery..."

The man in the photo, though he does greatly resemble Mr Hugh Jackman, is in fact South Africa's own Italian, Alessandro Morricco. He imports Nuovo Simonelli, Victoria Arduino and Kees van der Westen machines to South Africa and he is fondly regarded in our industry and now, thanks to Pete, we have a new way to tease him. This is good news :) If you need more convincing that we have a Hollywood Darling/Australian/Wolverine in our midst, see below research:

I don't know if the real Hugh Jackman like coffee, but we're happy his South African doppelganger absolutely loves the stuff!

Got something to say? Then leave a comment!
