Right after my first experience in drinking speciality coffee, it automatically sparked my interest to learn more about this beverage. My journey started back in the farm level as I enrolled for a basic coffee farm introductory course two years ago and this was followed by a basic barista course, after taking these basic courses in our country, I pursued taking SCA-Training Courses in Singapore to learn more and to prepare myself before working behind the bar as a barista.
I together with 2 individuals launched a speciality coffee company with an objective of sourcing high-quality raw material locally and importing green coffee beans from some of the best coffee farms, and serve these coffees in our community. I am currently the roaster, green-bean buyer, quality director of The Good Cup Coffee Company. Joining this competition is pushing me to test the limits of my philosophy in coffee at a different level while learning from the process and I am also dedicating this hard work to my best friend, John.
