Alex Kitain
Alex is the co-founder of specialty coffee business The Coffeevine, and has been an Amsterdam resident for more than 7 years. He has lived all over the world and speaks 4 languages fluently. He studied Marketing in the UK, and started his career working in brand marketing for a large multinational before spending several years managing various Marketing departments at different e-commerce companies.

In 2012 he started a blog about specialty coffee, which is now one of Europe’s most popular blogs about getting great coffee. Recently he decided to turn his back on the corporate world and follow his dream by turning The Coffeevine blog into a business. The Coffeevine will soon launch its own coffee subscription service, which will feature only the very finest coffees.

 

He is a talented networker who doesn’t take no for an answer. As they say in his native German: Geht nicht, gibt’s nicht.
