Read Patrik Rolf’s From Nerd to Pro – a coffee journey

From Nerd to Pro – a coffee journey

Patrik Rolf, Founder of April Coffee Roasters in Copenhagen, Denmark, and 2019 World Brewers Cup Runner Up has written his first book, From Nerd to Pro – a coffee journey.

The biography details the story of Rolf’s first decade navigating the industry, from dish boy in Gothenburg to roastery owner in Copenhagen. It is an unfiltered story of how to take a hobby and turn it into a professional career, or how a coffee professional can take the next career step, thanks to Rolf’s top takeaways and lessons learned from his own journey to the top.

“It’s the guide I wished I had when I first started. Sharing our experiences is how we allow others to become better than ourselves,” says Rolf.

The book launched in May 2022 and is printed in Copenhagen using paper made of recycled takeaway cups, totalling nine cups per book.
