In 2014 I moved to the USA to pursue an education. I attended Highlands College and ARC where I received a lot of valuable experience and knowledge in leadership and event management.
However, I’ve always been a coffee connoisseur. During my time in the US, I was fortunate to work in the coffee industry, with professionals in this field, at Woodlawn Cycle Cafe. Thanks to the Domestique crew, several dozen of books, Counter Culture School, and many cups of coffee, I’ve gained a lot of knowledge. The business aspect I learned through working for Civil Stoneware. It was indeed an exceptional experience. Now 3 1/2 years later, I’ve come to realize my dream, to do what I love in my country. As I begin this journey, I am excited to share my successes and difficulties of building a business in Ukraine.
