The Underdog

Please tell us a little bit about yourself:

I’ve work in the coffee industry as a barista for the last seven years. Speciality coffee is my passion and the reason I became the 2018 Greek Barista champion. I love competing in coffee events because it gives me motivation and of course its a great chance to develop my knowledge. I am part of The Underdog roasters family, a well known speciality coffee company in Greece and abroad.

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

Explore the coffee scene of the city and food culture.

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

2016 Greek Barista Championship –  3rd Place

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

The Underdog Roasters team

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?:

In less than five years I hope to operate my own speciality coffee shop, serving delicious coffees roasted by The Underdog roasters coffee company.

What are your interests outside of coffee?:
