It can be said that Carlos became a pastry chef because he followed his heart. Enthusiastic and tenacious by nature, he completed his school education both in Denia and Valencia. After that he began to work for big hotel chains such as Marriott and Westin among others.
Increasingly passionate, he deepened his technique with countless specialized courses from renowned pastry chefs (including Jordi Bordas, Paco Torreblanca, Oriol Balaguer etc.) and in 2013, despite his job stability, he decided to begin a new adventure and move to London.
His courage was rewarded as he had the opportunity to grow professionally in England: after working in the pastry department of the famous Harvey Nichols, he landed at Starguest, a kosher catering company of which he would become head pastry chef. With Starguest, he had the honor to participate in the preparation of big events for the english Prime Minister and for the guests of the Queen of England at Buckingham Palace. Despite the level reached, for him was clear from the beginning that what he wished for was to have his own shop, a laboratory where he could let his creativity running free.
Mara - graduated in Communication Sciences at the University of Bergamo (Italy) - never had clear ideas about her future. After chasing her initial dream for a while and working as a copywriter in an advertising agency in Milan, she decided to change path and move to London in 2012, with the excuse of learning English and basically with the irresistible desire to start a new adventure.
She worked in a takeaway, as a waitress in a restaurant, in retail, and finally as a manager in a popular ice cream parlour before realizing that her desire was to open her own coffee shop. So she decided to deepen her coffee knowledge getting to work in one of the best coffee shop and roastery in London (Monmouth Coffee).
Eventually she seems to have discovered what makes her happy!
