A bit about me – a specialty coffee professional since 2012, Licensed Q Arabica grader, coffee taster, roast master, former fulltime barista, barista-trainer, sensory judge at barista competitions, volunteer at the coffee farms in Panama and Costa Rica – in other words, I worked or volunteered at almost every stage of a coffee chain (including diplomas, SCA certifications, etc).

Among other things, I lived and worked as a roast master in Panama, roasting fine panamanian coffees incuding famous geishas. In 2014 I volunteered at the coffee farm in Costa Rica, seeing and living the life ordinary farmers and pickers live – adding to that I am pretty aware that the more I learn about coffee the more I understand that I still have a lot to learn.
