My coffee journey started as a coffee trader in Switzerland. I moved shortly after to Kenya and Tanzania and spent most of my time on coffee farms, in cupping rooms and in drymills. After my time at origin, I worked for several coffee roasters in marketing across Europe.
The last years have been especially exciting: once I entered the specialty coffee world, I founded a coffee academy, launched a specialty coffee range, competed and judged in barista competitions and also deepened my coffee science knowledge during a collaboration with the Zurich University of Applied Sciences.
Recently I published my book “INSPIRE and GET INSPIRED” to share his passion for specialty coffee. I am currently waiting to move to Melbourne to continue my coffee adventure as the new General Manager for Victoria Arduino in Australia.
