I believe I can become one of the top baristas in the Netherlands and have a plan to find out if that is true by the end of 2022.

By competing in the Dutch Brewers Cup in 2020, I hope to get my feet wet and dive head-first in the world of coffee competitions. I watched the preliminaries in 2019 to get an idea of what it’s like and meet a few baristas. The bar is definitely set high and competition is strong.

But the worst-case is that I’ll fail to qualify for the finals yet still have experienced a year full of great coffee, different brew methods and met other coffee geeks and nerds like me who will have taught me só much more about coffee that it’s still a win!

Hence, my dreams are to be fanatic with coffee, learn and compete and be

  • top 10 world-wide in WBC 2022, if I can place
  • top 3 Dutch Brewers Cup 2021 after making the
  • top 10 Dutch Brewers Cup 2020

If you can help me reach that goal, please get in touch and find out!
