How do you see the coffee industry changing in the future?:

This is the best part of our job! I believe that we are all ambassadors of specialty coffee and we should keep working and dialling in the absolute best result every day, to raise the level of our coffee industry!

Where do you see yourself in five years?:

I would love to see myself with a lovely family, for sure! If we are talking about coffee, this passion is never over!

I would love to thank my coach and my friend, Tasos Delichristos; my team and my best friends back at The Underdog and The Rabbit Punch; and of course one of my favorite coffee producers, Jamison Savage for this amazing coffee!
