Mette Marie Hansen speaking at Barista Camp Estonia 2016.
Mette-Marie works as a coffee trader with Sucafina, a family-owned business and one of the leading trade houses in the world. She sources coffee from most coffee producing countries around the globe, and interacts with coffee buyers and suppliers at every level of the supply chain. With more than 17 years of experience within the industry, from starting as a barista in her native country Norway, Mette-Marie’s career has brought her to the US, Canada, East-Africa and most recently, Geneva, Switzerland. She is passionate about the sustainability aspects of the business; emphasising practical, concrete methods of implementation and change so that great ideas can be turned into sustained action. When she’s not in the Geneva office or traveling to visit Sucafina’s many origin operations, you can find her running, drinking wine, and trying to learn French. Sometimes all at once.
