Miss Metal: Queen of Coffee

Apr 29th, 2011, in Featured, IM Posts, by

In January 2012 the coffee producing nations of the world will put forward their best daughters, not to be sold to the highest bidder, but to compete in the Reinado Internacional del Café (International Queen of Coffee) competition in Colombia, widely expected to be bitterly contested.

The event to be held in Manizales, Colombia will see for the first time in its fifty year history a representative from Indonesia, an easy on the eye girl with a resplendently interesting name, Laskary Andaly Metal Bitticaca, from local coffee producing giant province South Sulawesi, who won the local Putri Kopi Indonesia 2011 contest last week.

Sofinel BáezLaskary will face some tough Latin American competition, as the event is traditionally dominated by swarthy beauties from the likes of Brazil (7 times won), Colombia (5), Costa Rica (4), Chile (3), Dominican Republic (3), Argentina (2), Honduras (2), and Puerto Rico (2). Inexplicably, Germany has also won twice. The current title-holder, Sofinel Báez from Dominican Republic, is pictured left.

Do Indonesian women have what it takes to compete with the haughty and sophisticated Latin goddesses? We will see.

Standing her in good stead Laskari is said to have won the national Putri Kopi pageant, not only because of her beauty but also her thorough going knowledge of coffee and arcanery related to its production and such, of which substance Indonesia is the fourth biggest producer in the world, after Brazil, Vietnam, and Colombia.

Laskari is expected to promote Indonesian coffee to the world, particularly the cat poop Kopi Luwak type, and also to spur on the development of coffee plantation tourism in the country. Hopefully, in Gus Dur speak, she can talk.

    Not a chance. When it comes to beauty pageants Latin babes are the bomb.

    It probably is also partly due to their more frequent entries and relative proximity to the host country.

    I wonder if Vietnam has ever sent a representative to this competition?

    Quite possibly Chris….but probably this has more to do with it…

    I once visited the Dominican Republic. The local women are a feast for the eyes. That’s the great thing about Latin America, a lot of intermarriage between natives, whites and blacks.

    Allez lairedion, Indonesian women are as hot as those south american beauties. It’s just that the hotter ones are rarely into the pageant thingy. It’s always the so-so looking who are interested in these kinds of stuff.. ;)

    Mbak, when it comes to looks Latin babes are the bomb. Even Mrs. L. agrees.

    But that’s just one part of the whole package.

    I wonder what female charms she will use to explain and promote Kopi Luwak, the most expensive excrement in the world.
    Or is it just my imagination..?

    “Do Indonesian women have what it takes to compete with the haughty and sophisticated Latin goddesses? We will see”

    I think many Indonesian models already look Latino, because of our obsession with big eyes and mixed-race Indos!
