Talk Subject: Café Design & Barista Training


Klaus Thomsen first picked up a portafilter in 2001 in London. Shortly after returning home to Denmark, Klaus won the Danish Barista Championship in both 2004 (placing 3rd in the 2004 WBC) and in 2006, when he went on to win the World Barista Championship.

In 2007, he joined with Peter N. Dupont, Casper E. Rasmussen, and Linus Törsäter to open The Coffee Collective. Now, as both Co-Owner and Director of Sales, Marketing, and Barista Education, Klaus helps to grow the team of 35 baristas working at The Coffee Collective’s three shops (Jaegersborggade, Torvehallerne, and Godthåbsvej).
