Christos Kostavassilis

Tutor of WSPC Coffee School

I am happy that I have been given the opportunity to prove my love and passion for what I do, through the WSPC and BSA training programs! Going through the coffee’s third wave and entering the fourth, the market requirements for development need reliable, impartial, and certified training aimed at professionalism, from the very beginning of the Barista career. I am positive that the WSPC Coffee School as a whole, will inspire market professionals and young people alike, with the same passion for the immense field of coffee, cocoa and tea, and together we will be able to introduce them to this magical world. What could be more beautiful than "making" someone's day with a genuine smile and an even tastier beverage!
