Régine, Freelance Traveling AST and Professional Coffee Volunteer
Régine loves coffee. She has a stack of green coffee books on her bedside table, sleeps with her refractometer, dreams of the perfect extraction, cups every morning, then drinks coffee throughout the day.
Training is her passion, and connecting with new coffee people is as essential to her as breathing.
Régine drunk coffee for the fist time in Martinique when she was 7… When she stole her Gran’s cup of coffee! Delicious!
Régine, started her journey as a coffee trainer at a High Street Coffee Company in London, around 2011.
After achieving her Brewing and Barista Skills SCA (Speciality Coffee Association) diplomas she became an AST (Authorised SCA Trainer) in 2016, then added SCA Sensory Skills and SCA Green Coffee modules to her AST teaching.
