About me

About me

I am Diogo, from Porto, Portugal. I have been in the coffee industry ever since I was a child because of my father. He has been selling coffee for over 40 years and during summer vacations I used to accompany him to help out with coffee delivery. Time passed and in the meantime I completed my university studies, got a bit of professional experience in Europe and overseas, yet outside the coffee world. However, it did not take long to understand that I would like to engage/work in the coffee industry. But I needed to learn more about it. So I looked around and found a Master's programme in Coffee Economics and Science in Trieste, Italy, and applied for it. By 2015, I had my master's degree in coffee, a lot of friends in coffee producing countries and found out about specialty coffee. When I returned to Porto, I knew I had to start roasting coffee, hence in 2016 I created a company for roasting specialty coffee. Additionally, driven by my fascination with 'all things coffee' I also founded a coffee school here in Porto, in 2018, abcoffee. What followed were the several training and courses at the field, to name some: Q Robusta Grader - since 2019, Q Arabica Grader - since 2020.
