My name is Yiannis Taloumis and this is my blog about my life and coffee.


I am a coffee professional, roaster, Q grader and a member of the International Cup of Excellence jury. I am also CEO at Taf Coffee, Head of Quality and also coordinator on direct relationship coffee programs. Apart from my job, coffee for me is an obsession.

I like to discover flavors, unique crops, passionate farmers, high tech gadgets, new or ancient methods to prepare it. I love being close to nature and I respect the environment. In these blogs you can find little stories about my journeys in the world, small incidents of my caffeinated life.
