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 2023.

By competing in the Dutch Brewers Cup in 2021, 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. I’m volunteering with SCA Nederland to help current barista’s and get even more insights.

However, the whole Corona crisis seriously hinders my plans and limits my work opportunities and hands-on coffee time.
