Coffee is just coffee, right? Wrong! Had a chat with South African Barista champion @Winston_Douglas as he shared insights right before he jets off to NYC for the Black Coffee event where he will be engaged in dialogue about race and coffee culture.
Winston currently works as Tastemaker, travelling around the globe experiencing, consulting and reviewing hidden cafes gems the world has to offer. One thing that stood out in my conversation with @winston_douglas was the struggle he had with his friends & family about the misconceptions they had about what he does. “People think I walk around with a flask and pour coffee all day ” He also works with various NGO helping to assist young boys to get into the industry and making sure it is an inclusive environment for all in it.
