Gauteng-based coffee crafter Kyria Lumingu Sasa – who recently won the Almond Breeze Breezey Masters competition – is a budding barista and then some… he’s also a budding musician
The man who scooped this year’s Almond Breeze Breezey Masters competition title, Kyria Lumingu Sasa
MY GUILTY PLEASURES ARE… A Cadbury P.S. Caramilk bar and biltong.
ONE OF MY FAVOURITE COFFEES IS…A black filter coffee (pourover) prepared using the Hario V60 brew method.
IN MY FRIDGE YOU WILL ALWAYS FIND Tomatoes, onions, green peppers and aubergines.
DURING MY FREE TIME...I sit with my acoustic guitar and compose songs while practising my skills.
THE THINGS I LOVE MOST ABOUT BEING A BARISTA ARE The craft and story behind each bean I grind and brew.
I THINK THE MOST USEFUL KITCHEN UTENSIL IS...A stainless-steel frying pan.
I AM CONGOLESE AND LIKE TO STAY CONNECTED TO MY ROOTS THROUGH… Food, particularly carapau [Portuguese for horse mackerel].
