Along the way, Ryohji has participated in various competitions, including the AeroPress Championships, UKBC, UKBrC, and Extracted Development, each experience shaping him into the formidable competitor he is today.

When asked about his excitement for the London Coffee Masters competition, Ryohji's passion for brewing shines through. Brewing, he says, is where his heart lies, and he's eager to showcase the skills and knowledge he's acquired on his journey.
