The perfect pairing

Meet Søren Stiller Markussen 
- Danish barista champion and recent top 5 barista in the world.

Søren is also owner and founder of Great Coffee in Aarhus, Denmark. It’s frequently named as one of the best places in Europe to get your caffeine fix.

Søren’s story didn’t actually start with coffee, he was a pastry chef for 15 years and is an expert in pairing coffee with food.

We set him a task – to identify the perfect coffee to serve with each of the five new MiniMania pastries.

 Many thanks to Søren Stiller Markussen for his professional advice. If you would like more information about his coffee – and to visit his amazing roastery in Aarhus, you can read more here: www.greatcoffee.dk/
