    The founder

    Hi! I’m Wendelien 🙂

    You may know me as the 2019 World Aeropress Champion, or maybe you’ve seen me online, or perhaps on stage as judge, speaker or MC at a coffee event somewhere around the world.

    My career in coffee has its had ups and downs -like yours probably.

    There were many times I didn’t know where I belonged, or what my place in the overwhelming coffee industry was.

    I’ve felt alone often, and struggled through not one, but two burnouts (I’m also a little stubborn…)

    After 15 years working in our beautiful – but complex- industry, I decided to create that positive place myself: The Happy Coffee Network.

    A place where you will always feel welcome, supported and cheered on.

    Where you don’t have to have all the answers, but you’re simply surrounded by likeminded people who are all trying their best evey day.

    After all, coffee tastes better with friends!
