Lily Gadelshina
DoubleB Coffee&Tea

Please tell us a little bit about yourself:

I love my job, because it’s a language that unites people around the world, and we prove it.

Are you excited to be  in Amsterdam?:

Oh, sure! After all, this is a very big responsibility.

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

2015 Russian Barista Championship –  2nd Place
2016 Russian Barista Championship – 4th Place
2017 Russian Barista Championship – 2nd Place
2018 Russian Barista Championship – 1st Place

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

Yes! My mother, my boyfriend Dmitriy Marichev, my coach Dmitriy Boroday, and everyone at DoubleB Coffee&Tea company.

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

I think that the trends for the taste of coffee will change from year to year, which will lead to development in various experimental fermentations, but the classic elegance and rich taste of coffee will always exist in the future. I think the freezing of coffee will still be 5-10 years very popular.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?:

I’d hope to be opening my own coffee shop and start working on a plantation, doing experimental treatments.

What are your interests outside of coffee?:

I like to take care of indoor plants, to cook, sing and play sports.
