Teddy Nzama has flown the South African flag high in the barista world. 

What is a barista? In its most basic terms, a barista is a person who serves customers in a coffee shop.

But there is a big difference between the coffee a barista makes and the coffee you get from the office kitchen.

Yes, J Sbu, we are side eyeing you! 

Teddy was crowned the best Barista in EMEA in late 2019 and 2020, the competition took place over three days in London. The finalists competed for the best latte. 

Teddy is not resting on his laurels, however. 

His name and face may be familiar to you as he is based in popular hang out of Florida Road Starbucks. 

Stacey, who is a coffee lover of note and often has her cuppa on Saturday mornings prepared by Teddy himself, invited Teddy on the show to chat about his love for coffee and the coffee culture in South Africa. 

That was not all though. You do know that Teddy was not going to show up empty handed...
