This story began when we were lucky enough to cross paths with Diego Campos a few years back here in Melbourne. He wanted to be with Derlin Roa, his partner, who was here to study English. We then learned Diego happened to be a Colombian Barista Champion (again in 2019, why not) and Derlin the daughter of a remarkable coffee producer, Don Elias Roa. When studies were complete and they had a little girl, Sofia, it was time to be with family.
In 2021 Diego took out the title of World Barista Champion at the championships in Milan. The recognition and esteem for his years of hard work and training is thoroughly deserved. We look forward to working with a world champion many years into the future.
