Du Jianing
M2M Coffee

Please tell us a little about yourself:

I started my career in coffee in 2010. Competition for me is challenging and fun, but most importantly it helps me to grow a lot. It is my second time to compete in the World Brewers Cup. I am sure I will enjoy every moment of the compeition.

How did you get started in coffee?:

I fell into coffee by asking in a shop if there was a job, and I got it.

Please list the coffee competitions you have participated in, what year they took place, and your results:

2015 China Barista Championship – 3rd Place
2016 China Brewers Cup – 1st Place
2016 World Brewers Cup – 15th Place
2018 China Brewers Cup – 1st Place

What are you excited to do while you are in Brazil?:


What was your first amazing experience with coffee?:

2015 I mixed honey and natural gesha to make a brew, using the syphon method. That coffee was the most smooth and sweet gesha I ever tasted.

What is your favorite coffee brewing method and why?:

I’m actually interested in so many methods. If I’m travelling Aeropress is my favourite gadget as it’s easy to carry around. At the coffee shop, drip is my favourite as it delivers more layers of flavours.

What coffee-producing country most interests or excites you?:

Ethiopia and Brazil.

What are your interests outside of coffee?:

Food, running, and travel.

Is there anyone you would like to thank or recognize, or who helped you to prepare for the competition?:

There are so many people I would like to thank. If I mention someone I am sure I will miss others. However, I really appreciate my whole team who have supported me in this competition. There is no way for me to reach this far without them.
