|"Coffee is a sense of energy for your body. One cup of good coffee|
is a perfect reason for a good start of your day!"
~Konstantinos Iatridis, barista
So imagine my surprise when I started chatting with the barista behind the counter, and discovered that he was none other than the World Brewers Cup man himself!
We talked about the recent championship, and about the fact that he came in second to a Norwegian barista from Supreme Roastworks, a fantastic shop in Oslo that we have visited on several occasions.

Domatiotis is a well-known name in the coffee world, winning the World Barista Championship in 2014, and being named Greek Barista Champion six times. So for Iatridis to be inspired and motivated by the likes of a Stefanos suggests a truly deep passion for coffee.
When asked what he prefers to drink, Konstantinos opts for the coffee he used in the World Brewer Cup championship, a Ninety Plus maker series from Panama. And Iatridis is a coffee purist, preferring a filter coffee over anything else, due to the fact that this methods makes it "easier to realize all the aromas and the characteristics of the coffee."
Thanks to Konstantinos for his time, expertise, and help in making our afternoon at Taf so very satisfying!
