About Me


And what do I do

Hi I’m Davide, born in Verona.

I come from the food service field ,and since I was young I always wanted to experience and professionally develop.

Throughout the years my passion for coffee bar refreshment has exploded, to the point I started wishing to convey my own passion to other people.

That brings me,after many years of experience,to make the choice to commit to Advicing and Training in the world of coffee.


From 2011 I’m committed to Training in Italy as well as abroad (Asia, Middle East, North Europe are some of the areas in which I worked).

On 2015 I became a SCA Official Trainer for the Modules pertaining Barista Skills, Brewing, Green Coffee, Sensory Skills and Roasting, furthermore I have been SCA Italy Education Coordinator and I actively took part in each event we organized in Italy and worldwide for 4 years.

On may 2022 i have been elected as SCA Italy National Coordinator with a clear mission: Let the Specialty Coffee become more popular and spread the meaning of SC to the mass.

2023? Still remaining on SCA Italy NC position, I’m going to take also a position Roasting Guild advisory council as board of directors.

CTA Courses

Through my school Coffee Training Academy I aim to spread the culture of great coffee and the techniques to extract the best out of each and every single grain,transmitting passion and interest in the student,allowing him to become a REAL professional and a quality enthusiast.

The Training Academy consists of two different aspects, one consisting in itinerant experiences in roasting estabilishment and/or bar-coffee shops, the other being made up of scholastic training in Italy and abroad.

I’ve experienced for many years in Asia, Europe and Middle East.
