Brought up in Serres, by a family who owned a traditional roastery, Panagiotis fell in love with the world of coffee since a very young age. Initiator of Roasters Kolektiva, he is the main responsible for the choice of green coffee, the roasting, the assessment of the product, and generally each stage of the production process.
Since I can remember myself, I would always find myself next to a roaster, picking coffee beans from the ground. My grandfather used to tell me: for every bean you get, I will give you a penny.
In October 2017, Panagiotis won the title of the Best Coffee Roaster in the 1st Hellenic Coffee Roasting Championship, a distinction that gave him the ticket to represent our country in the World Coffee Roasting Championship 2017 in Guangzhou, China.
