I have roasted coffee for baristas, who ended up winning their national championships – and aided in developing roast profiles for a barista, who ended up becoming no. 6 in the world.
So far my favorite coffee experience was in 2017, where I got to visit a coffee farm in Tanzania. It was an amazing experience, to participate in every part of the process.
Then, in 2019 I started working with illy and completed their coffee certification course.
Today, I teach baristas, install and fix equipment, still learning and finding great joy and pleasure in helping people improve their coffee knowledge and skills, while still having all the technical challenges from time to time. I still roast at home for friends and family, who have followed my roasting journey From the start. This keeps me on my toes so that nobody takes my certification away.
