#MCM | MAN CRUSH MONDAY | SASA SESTIC

Updated: Jul 24, 2018


There’s no doubt about it. Canberra’s own Sasa Sestic is a worldwide coffee legend.


Sasa migrated to Australia from war-torn Bosnia in 1997. Only a few years later he competed in the European Handball for Australia in the 2000 Sydney Olympics. This wouldn’t be the last time he competed for Australia though. In 2015, he represented Australia and was crowned World Barista Champion!


Now, Sasa's main focus is creating and connecting a global coffee community and producing the perfect cup of coffee.

Widely regarded as one of the industry’s leading educators, Sasa mentors, trains and consults with baristas and café owners from around the globe.


Sasa's recent autobiography and documentary, both titled, ‘The Coffee Man’, follow his journey through coffee farms and winning the World Barista Championship.
