When I grew up, coffee always was a reason for gathering with people you love. So as a child I demanded my parents to add the tiniest bit of coffee to my hot milk just to fit in. Now I can be as passionate about a good cup of coffee as I am about a good photograph.
Maybe that’s why my favourite coffee bar eventually hired me, resulting in me photographing the coffee bean from roast ‘till cup.
Now, I have photographed the craftsmanship of the small roasters up to the giant powerhouses that produce for wholesale.
Because of my previous experiences in Brazil, I am looking to travel to Brazil to start photographing the actual plantations to complete te circle of the coffee bean’s life.
