About


Hi there coffee lovers! Welcome to my blog.

My name is Mariëlla, 28 years old. The creator of The Exploring Barista. And people call
me a crazy coffee girl. My life is all about specialty coffee. My work and my free
time are combined and related. You could say that I am working 24h a day,
but I prefer to say that I am practicing my passion every hour of the day.

After working in several hospitality places I wanted to try something different
and with a growing coffee culture in The Netherlands I was curious about it.
I found a job as a barista and I loved it. It was love at first sight!

So, my passion for coffee started back in 2012. This was my first experience
with making coffee with a real espresso machine (Mirage – Kees van der Westen).
Coffee is an amazing product and since that moment I knew there is no way back.
Coffee is my past, coffee is my future. I am working as a barista over five years now.

I want to keep working in this industry for the rest of my life and I have different
goals to reach. On my blog I will keep you updated how this is going.
There is still a lot to learn and to explore. Step by step I will do what makes me happy.
It is time for a new adventure a new step. I am working on starting as a
hospitality consultant in combination with barista training.
Wanna work with me? Take a look at my business page. (Coming Soon!)

Thanks for visiting and enjoy!
