Coffee is super inspirational ingredient. It challenges you every day… That's why I love it!

I'm Ulla and I love coffee. I have worked as a barista trainer for over five years now. I accidentally ended up working in a café 2004, fell in love with coffee and have stayed on that coffee road since. Coffee is super inspirational ingredient. It challenges you every day… That´s why I love it!

During these coffee years I have achieved Authorized SCAE Trainer title (AST). I teach SCAE Barista Skills module in Finland. I have also done judging in coffee competitions; sensory judge in Finnish Barista Championships and visual judge in Finnish Latte Art Championships. At the moment I'm Training Manager at Paulig Barista Institute.

Fun fact: Figure skating was my true love from age of five until age of 15. :)

Coffee superpower:  At the moment I love to try and play around with different hand brewing methods. 

Favorite coffee destination:  I would love to visit Tanzania.
