How many hours total do you think you’ve practiced for this competition?
I started practicing last July and the routine is almost the same for Worlds as it was for Nationals. So every weekend until January, then 2 months working only for the Spanish Championship, and then 2 more months for the worlds. I can’t even say how many hours!

Do you have a coach/coaches? Tell us about them!
Felix Donosti, a senior technical judge, Q-grader and SCAE trainer. He is very hard as a coach, but you learn a lot of his experience and you also have a few good laughs with him.

Is there anything else you want to tell us? We’d love to learn more about you.
Specialty coffee is alive in Spain (with a few years’ delay). It’s specialty coffee reinassance. Come see us!
