Education Profile – Nadin Rathgeber-Hughes – Barista Trainer

Event Date: 23rd February, 2019

Nadin Rathgeber-Hughes of member company IncaFe recently completed the Professional Development course in Wellington.  We asked Nadin to provide us with a short hilarious biography.

Describe yourself:

On a personal level, well I am German, truly, with all its Trademarks. I am an Aquarius and was born in the year of the rabbit missing the year of the dragon by six days. So basically I am fiery furball. LOL.

How long have you been in coffee?

Coffee is my poison since age six and training is my passion and has been for the past 18 years.

What’s an interesting fact about you?

I come from former East Germany, so behind the Iron curtain and lived the same way as North Koreans, until the age of 13.

Other than coffee, what do you love?

I love Shiraz, a good laugh, intellectual conversations about a lot of stuff and love my husband to bits. I’m learning to ski and building a house on Sumbawa island and soon at Glenbrook beach. I am huge on recycling and reusing, waste reduction and self-sustainability and their practices.

Favourite Brew:

My favourite way of enjoying coffee is a brew prepared with the clever cup.
