Let me introduce myself: My name is Panagiotis Nikas and I am a coffee instructor and a book author. On my personal blog, I feel like sharing with you things that characterize me, snapshots from my life, and experiences from my +30-year journey in the magnificent world of coffee. Enjoy your navigation!
was born in Athens in 1970. I am married and have three daughters and two grandchildren!
Being active and busy from a young age, I have been involved in many sports and activities. My biggest love used to be cycling. Unfortunately, I had to give it up due to injury.
In adolescence, poetry and playing the guitar were my companion.
Even now, they relax me in my little free time. Throughout my life, I have not stopped looking for my limits and that is why I have tried all the extreme sports.
Sky diving, mountaineering and climbing have kept on the flame of exceeding the limits and the longing for achieving new goals.
Consequently, since 1987, I have always followed the path of coffee with the same desire: the desire for perfection through continuous self-improvement.
This very desire has led me onto a long journey of search.
This beautiful journey has filled me with so much knowledge and unprecedented experiences, which I feel the need to share with you.
In this journey, I have received influences from many friends who have really defined me being the source of inspiration for my every next step.
I will focus, in particular, on the love and support of my family. Without their loving support and understanding, nothing would be the same.
