Victor F. T. Kristensen
Please tell us a little about yourself:
I have been working in the coffee industry for 4 years. Mainly as a part of La Cabras roasting team, but I’ve also spent some hours behind the bar. I am 19 years old and ended in third place in last years Brewers Cup.
What are you excited to do in Boston?:
I can’t wait to see the coffee scene in Boston, but I’m also looking forward to networking and meeting friends of the company.
Please list the coffee competitions you have participated in, what year they took place, and your results:
Danish Brewers Cup 2018 – third place
Danish Brewers Cup 2019 – first place
How do you see the coffee industry changing in the future?:
A deeper focus on bridging the gap between the average coffee drinker and specialty coffee. I see this happening though high-end middle american lots. Presenting a coffee experience of much greater quality than the average cup, but with more comfortable flavour notes and textures.
Where do you see yourself in five years?:
Pushing an industry to the limits, maybe in coffee if not beer, wine, or food.
What are your interests outside of coffee?:
I own an artisan beer brewing company, and I also have an art and music project going on in May. I have a great interest in wine, sourdough pizza, and food.
Is there anyone you would like to thank or recognize, or who helped you to prepare for the WBrC?:
I would like to thank Benjamin Kithler, Dane Oliver, Esben Piper, Mikkel Selmer, Mads Mark Eriksen, John Gibson, Edward Anderson Brown. The whole La Cabra team and those who have influenced me the past 4 years. And most of all I would like to thank my main inspiration and support, my father Henrik.
