Marcel Angelo Walker – coffee roaster and creative jack-of-all-trades.
For Marcel, doing the things he is most passionate about always came naturally. He is happy with his job as a coffee roaster, but after eight hours of work his day is far from being over: His free time is dedicated to his manifold interests. He likes to spend his hours reading a good book, doing some wood carving or emergency aid training with his dog until the cats become jealous. His house and garden need some attention too, as does the atelier - if he is not too busy making masterful cocktails as a barkeeper.
For Marcel, living his passions is essential: “You only live once. Following your passion means making the best out of your time.” As he is skilled in craftsmanship, he likes to work with his hands. An office job or party nights every weekend would never suit him. Salary is secondary, if you get up in the morning and are really looking forward to the new day, he says.
