Please tell us a little about yourself:
I’m originally from Estonia, but moved to the Netherlands a little over three years ago to pursue my passion for coffee. Since then I’ve been learning as much as possible by working in all aspects of the coffee industry in Amsterdam. From the beginning I’ve been enamored with latte art, and I am so excited to have made it to the world stage.
How did you get started in coffee?:
My friend suggested I help out at a local cafe. When I started working I saw the effect that coffee can have on a persons’ day and I wanted to make it my career.

Dutch Latte Art Nationals, 2019 – First place

What is the most unusual vessel you have poured latte art into?:
