World Barista Championship Finalist Coming to STIX Mediterranean Grill
Stefanos Domatiotis is coming to NYC. The six-time Greek Barista Championship winner and three-time World Barista Championship finalist will be working at STIX Mediterranean Grill just east of Madison Square Park. He was also on the cover of this month’s Barista Magazine.
According to the NY Times, this is an example of the increasing popularity of baristas. “Mr. Domatiotis, who is from Greece, could have worked in the best coffee places anywhere in the world. He is like many in this new generation of coffee professionals, baristas whose mastery of the craft — and curiosity about their own field — has taken them around the globe to visit farms and check in with roasters, hold master classes and lecture in front of paying audiences.”
Stefanos Domatiotis will be preparing his drinks with a custom-roasted blend he developed with Brooklyn’s Stone Street Coffee Company. Head over to the NY Times to learn more about Stefanos Domatiotis and his story!
