Myself and my collegue Karine Veen (senior Barista at East57 Amsterdam) were the the finals to compete for the title Best Barista of North Nederlands. Proudly i have won the championship, but what made me double happy and proud is that Karine Veen has ended as the Best 3'th Barista of the competetion and we took 2 cups with us to Amsterdam.
