I’m on of the new Graphic Design Intern, currently living in London. Coffee for me is an essential particle of the atmosphere, I can’t wait to give my contribute to its community and bring real value to it!
I’m very excited to be part of this lovely team. My coffee journey began when I had my first Freddo Cappuccino ( cold version of a cappuccino which usually has a small amount of cold milk foam on top) some years ago in Athens, Greece. Since then, I’m eager to learn more about coffee and always in the hunt for unique coffee spots around the world.
I have been surrounded by coffee since my childhood because every member of family was passionate about coffee. As for me, my favorite coffee drink is a Moscow-based Raf coffee. I’m super-excited about making a real-world impact on the development of barista community around the globe.

We are so honored to work with these amazing people from all over the globe.
I come from the world of wine and I fell in love with specialty coffee because is complex and never boring.I open my IG account Specialty PaL to spread the word about quality coffee because here in Italy the most of people don't know anything about it. And not just about coffee, but also about the different method of extraction.
#brewathome for me is a kind of life style. We should stay at home in these day and we should do it in the best possible way. In this suspended time, we can help to teach and learn something to each other and never forget to support local market. Every problem if faced together, surely will be easier and more powerful!
I’ve always loved coffee and began my journey into brewing specialty coffees around 2009 using just a French press. My fascination and interest for specialty coffee and manual brewing grew quickly and I searched for better coffees, mostly single origin coffees from roasters in the Pacific Northwest and Western Canada at the time.
Coffee really connects people! I’m really glad to be a part of something bigger with #brewathome campaign. Hoping our efforts can help people around the globe in these troubled times.
To me, #brewathome is an oasis of positivity during this very difficult time and a very powerful social media movement that brings together roasters, coffee accessory companies and customers. I am so happy to be a part of this and work with this incredible team of people.
What #brewathome means to me... In English, there is the expression " take a decision". This collection of words is beautiful. It's what being a part of the speciality coffee scene means. It's taking the decision to pursue perfection, knowledge, skills, more knowledge, more work, and so on and so on. Everyone knows, it really isn't an easy job, but what makes it so amazing is the community. The glue that holds all of this together. No politics. No borders. Just 1 common "decision that WE took", to make this world a better place, 1 cup of coffee at a time. Together.
