The reason I’m a barista is because there’s so much to learn about coffee and it keeps me inspired every day.

I’m Jori and I’ve been in the coffee business for the past 10 years and worked as a barista, manager and now as a trainer. The reason I’m a barista and a trainer is because there’s so much to learn about coffee and it keeps me interested and inspired every day. I can’t imagine working with anything else than coffee. I have SCAE Barista Skills Intermediate certification and hope to become an AST someday.

Fun fact: I used to be the captain of the worst handball team in Finland. Nowadays we’re a bit better.

Coffee superpower: Drinking espresso. Easily five doubles a day.

Favorite coffee destination: Amsterdam! The best-looking cafés and excellent coffee!
