Christy has an amazing background. She grew up on a farm in Limpopo, she married a scotsman and has run her own successful foodie business, which catered for renowned corporate giants in the Johannesburg CBD. Wait, we left out her middle name: "Hospitality"! Other options would be: Arithmetica, Calculatrix and Organizola!
Pedro, originally from Brazil, moved to Germany 3 years ago and improved his multiple language skills (English, German, Italian) while getting to know the local culture as a Barista before looping back into his real passion: the relocation industry. Not only does he make incredible coffee, but he is a master of the drums and guitar - no surprise as he was once in a rock band.
