Coffee Lab Zürich
Please tell us a little about yourself:
Hello, I’m Milo. I originally come from a coffee producing country, Indonesia, but funnily enough I got in touch with coffee 10 years ago when I moved to Switzerland. My first contact with coffee was when I got to learn to pour a heart on every cappuccino I made for each customer. Winning the Swiss Latte Art Championship in 2015 and 2016 was one of the highlights of my coffee journey. Since 2015 I’ve been head Trainer in Coffee Lab Zürich. I’m looking forward to being in Berlin, sharing ideas on how good quality coffee can be mixed with good quality spirits.
How did you get started in coffee?:
10 years ago when a heart was a must on every cappuccino I made.
