World Champion Barista – coffee king!
Sasa moved to Canberra from Serbia in 1997 and, in 2001, he completed an Advanced Diploma in Hospitality at the CIT Reid campus. After he completed his studies, Sasa found he had a strong passion for coffee which was at a time when Canberra did not have a wide offering of specialty coffee roasters or cafés serving high quality coffee. In 2015, Sasa won the Australian Barista Championships in Melbourne and went on to win the World Barista Championships in Seattle.
