Danish Food Minister, Ritt Bjerregaard, was served a cup of cappuccino by the world’s best coffee bartender, the Dane Martin Hildebrandt, at Arla Foods’ stand at the Anuga fair today, Monday.

“The minister didn’t ask for any particular type – all she wanted was a cup of coffee with milk,” said Martin Hildebrandt. “So I made her a cappuccino.”
