Alt Wien Kaffee
Please tell us a little about yourself:
I have been working in specialty coffee for 11 years now. I am co-owner of ALT WIEN KAFFEE. It’s a small roastery in Vienna, Austria (170 tons this year), with a wide range of commercial and also rare specialty coffees. Aside from sourcing the coffee, QC and key account handling, I am designing the roast profiles we are using on our Loring. In May I will be doing my Q-Grader course with Mike Riley. In my spare time, I have a family. And I drink coffee.
How did you get started in coffee?:
I was a customer of the small coffee shop I later became a partner in.
