The perfect cup of coffee was made with Cravendale in the UK heat of the World Barista Championships at Hotelympia, London.
Arla sponsored the event for the second year running and according to business manager Lorna Culican it was an excellent way of promoting Cravendale.
"The coffee market is growing at a phenomenal rate and creating huge opportunities for us," she said.
The winner was James Hoffmann, from Chesterfield, who will represent the UK at the world finals in Switzerland in May.
