Marit has been working with coffee since 1998 and has seen the development in the specialty coffee business in Oslo first hand. She started as product manager at Coop (on of Norway’s biggest roasteries) and has since been an important voice for coffee in Norway as Communications Director, and now manger of Norsk Kaffeinformasjon (NKI). Marit is also the the National Coordinator of the Norway chapter of the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) and is the Event Coordinator for the Norwegian Barista Championship.
NKI has a yearly survey in Norway to uncover people’s coffee habits. With this research going on at least a decade they have vast knowledge on changes in preferences, how we drink coffee, how much coffee we drink, what we use to brew our coffee, what we think about the health effects of drinking it, and much more.
