MEET OUR baristas
Barista's performances are made of gestures,
actions and intentions.
The result of experiences and roots that set us apart. People move through space interacting around the machine. Our lives are a flow of changes and challenges.

My name is Diego Campos, I am 32 years old and I have dedicated 13 years of my life to the wonderful world of coffee and I believe that it has been the best decision of my life, because thanks to coffee, I have managed to have a profession, a job and I do and work in what I like. Currently I am the world champion of baristas. I have my own coffee project, a farm called Diamante coffee farm located in the department of Huila - Colombia, a place where we can together with my wife materialize many dreams and continue learning and sharing coffee with the whole world.
I'm Daniel Gerlach, 34 years old and have been in the coffee scene for 14 years now. In 2020, I founded Seven Hills Coffee Roasters in Bavaria, Germany, with my colleague and friend Christian Ullrich. I have been working with the Astoria for over 12 years. It was my first machine at the German Latte Art Championships. In 2016, I went to the World of Coffee Championship in Shanghai and finished in the top 20. I am the current German Latte Art Champion and will represent Germany at the World of Coffee in Taipei Taiwan in November. As a chef in the patisserie, I was fascinated by the game of aromas and flavors, I still play this game, only with coffee.
I am Shanya Taratikundech from Bangkok, Thailand. For nearly two decades, I've embraced diverse roles: leading at the Promchim Coffee Academy, pioneering as a Microbiologist Coffee Process Research Consultant at Srinakharinwirot University, and holding WCC-certified judgeships. “Coffee inspires me through the diverse people.”
