Please tell us a little about yourself:
My name is Felix and I started working with coffee back in 2003, when I worked for a espresso machine local supplier. In 2008, I opened a small coffee shop and four years later I founded my own roastery. I sold the coffee shop 2 years ago to focus on the roastery. I really enjoy what I do!
Please list the coffee competitions you have participated in, what year they took place, and your results:
Austrian Coffee Roasting Competition 2019, 1st Place
What are you excited to do while you are in Taipei?:
I’m curious to see the city and its specialty coffee scene. And I’d love to go for a run.
Which coffee-producing country most interests or excites you?:
After years of roasting I’m still learning about origins so its hard to say. I’ve been to Ethiopia and I loved it, but there are a lot more coffee countries with great coffees and people behind it.
What are your interests outside of coffee?:
Music and trail running.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?:
Next to a roasting machine and hopefully able to answer the question about the favourite coffee-producing country.
Is there anyone you would like to thank or recognize, or who helped you to prepare for the competition?:
There are lots of people I’d like to thank for many reasons, but there is one person I have to thank the most—my girlfriend, Christina. She always helps me with my ideas and is the greatest support I can imagine, and she is also part of the roastery.
