A TRAINER OF EXCELLENCE
“When I opened my first bar at 18, and I realized that there were 38 of us selling coffee on one road, I knew that I had to try to do something different, if I wanted to set myself apart from the rest.”
Born in Piacenza in 1985, Chiara Bergonzi began to work in the bar and cafe sector at a very young age. Immediately she stood out thanks to her passion for coffee art, a discipline in which she would reach such heights as national and international rankings. In 2014, after winning the national championship for the third consecutive time (Cila) at the Sigep trade fair in Rimini, she flew to Melbourne to represent Italy at the World Latte Art Championship, where she took second place, the best finish ever for an Italian. Now she is dedicated to training and is an international SCAE judge.
