Who is Bastiaan Roozendaal?
I am 31 years old at the moment. I am a coffee lover, no I am not an expert. I am an entrepeneur, a father, a boyfriend and love to take on new things. I am from the Netherlands – no, I do not wear wooden shoes!
What is your favorite childhood memory?
That probably is the freedom you have as a kid. Not a care in the world only caring about that kickflip I need to land or the next fun thing I was going to do. I grew up in a small village with a lot of open land and farms, so that’s a lot of fun as a kid.
If you could have a do-over in life, what would you do differently?
My shool! I didn’t feel the urge to do my best in that time so I finished shool but I could have done so much more.
What do you feel most proud of?
My son, my grilfriend and my 2nd son that will come in July!!
If you could keep only 3 possessions, what would they be and why?
My Chemex, my snowboard and my camera.
What do you want your tombstone to say?
Probably my name! It’s not for me what’s on there so I have a hard time answering this question.
What is I Love Coffee Wear?
I Love Coffee has been an idea of mine for a while now and I started it up in January this year. It is fashionable coffee fashion. I do not want to do too much cheezy coffee slogans. I like to keep it as clean as a cup of Chemex brew.
What is your favorite kind brew method of coffee?
That’s the Chemex by far. Love the subtle tastes and the clearity in a cup. Combining it with a fruity Yirgacheffe rocks my world!!!
In which coffee shops are we likely to bump into you?
Not really, I am really a lonley home barista. My girlfriend doesn’t even drink coffee.
What does a perfect day look like?
That changes but now probably, get up just before my son does. Breakfast, COFFEE! then snowboarding all day or being in the mountains, coming home to a nice fireplace and good COFFEE again! And that with familly is perfect
