Michael Manhart
Independent

I was born in Salzburg and had my first contact with good coffee in 2013. I’ve taken part in 3 Aeropress Championships, 3 Cup Tasters Championships and in 2 Brewers Cups (2016 – 2nd place, 2017 – 1st place), and in Goran Hubers “Tiroler und Internationale Baristameisterschaften 2016” in the Filter Coffee Challenge (1st place). I love fruity coffee!

I’m in the anniversary of my transition to change my passion, which started three years ago by coffee brewing at my home, to profession by working at Kronotrop Coffee Bar & Roastery. It is a true excitement and happiness for me to challenge my experience that I gain in this short and intense period of time by attending to World Brewers Cup.
