Ariadna Chaparro
Coffee Matters MX

Please tell us a little bit about yourself:

Lead barista trainer at Coffee Matters school in San Remo Latin Mexico since 2015. Whenever I have the chance I travel to coffee farms to get to know the traceability of the industry in Mexico. My other passion besides cofffee is to ride my bike.

What are you excited to do while you are in Amsterdam?:

I’m looking forward to sharing experiences with coffee people.

Please list the coffee competitions you have participated in, what year they took place, and your results:

2016 Mexican Barista Championship – 3rd Place
2017 Mexican Barista Championship – 1st Place

Is there anyone you would like to thank or recognize, or who helped you to prepare for the WBC?:

My boss and director of San Remo Latin Mexico, Luis Carlos Fernandez, my family, friends that are my second family, and all the coffee community in Mexico.

How do you see the coffee industry changing in the future?:

There will be more experiments with different processing methods, different ways to roast and brewing these exotic coffees will be the challenge.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?:

Being re-certified as an AST for another period and also competing in the Mexican Brewers Cup.

What are your interests outside of coffee?:

I love taking pictures and riding my bike.
