Have been a CEO in my own coffee company (Maggie Loves Beans) for 10 years. During that time I have owned and run my own coffee house, ran a portable coffee bar at conventions, and am an acredited (SCAE) instructor and given courses and classes for 5 years.

Besides teaching coffee classes from bean to cup my curiosity of the coffee world has taken me to multi coffee lands where I have gone for my own research and also have organized and led touring groups. The last years Latte Art has opened my eyes to an artistic side of myself I did know existed.

Matteo Beluffi
Barista
ITALY
Graduated at the ”Liceo Artistico U.Boccioni ” in Milan.
At 18 I open my first local ice cream shop/bakery/café, an experience that will last 4 intense and formative years.
It undertakes the way for the catering of private events, fashion, weddings and fairs where I meet Mariano Semino and Chiara Bergonzi. From that moment, seeing them work, I decided to become a professional like their in coffee. From that moment, he begins my long and tortuous journey by himself, but followed and supported by colleagues like Emilio Repetti and Mariano Semino, until I get to do my first SCAE Italy competition (Latte Art) managing to classify 3rd. So I start to make my first courses and to take the first certifications SCAE Barista; retrying so fortunate, preparing by himself, replaying a championship bringing a new figure and classifying 2nd.
Today I deal with training in Milan
