Read about Christos’s journey, below:
First real job was as a Barista pouring coffee’s at kozy’s cafe Darwin 2005.
I am owner/ operator of Dtown roasters my inspiration came from wanting to be the first commercial roaster based In Darwin.
Building my Roasting business from the ground up over the last 4-5 years (5 years in October)
I will remain in the coffee industry for many years to come it has been good to me.
The main things I have noticed there is much more emphasis on the quality of the beans, smoother lighter roasts And freshness. In the latte art side of things Barista’s are pouring things I never thought possible.
To be completely honest I only drink my coffee black but I really enjoy using MILKLAB for latte art.
