One Love Coffee

Please tell us a little about yourself:

My journey in coffee started 3 years ago, when I came to ONE LOVE coffee. In this coffee shop, I understood that for me, coffee is more than just the work. It’s become my passion and has a lot of diversity, because of the different varieties, different tastes in each cup, which we had a chance to try. After that you can feel how big the world of coffee is, because you can develop in every field (as a barista, roaster,farmer, Q-grader). This is my motivation, to never stop exploring.
