Rogério Coelha Barroso

Where do you come from Rogério?

I currently reside in Curitiba, Brazil.

Where do you work?

I work as the head bartender at TAPII’TI.

Could you tell us a bit more about your career in the hospitality industry?

Seeing the great work of Robert Schikel, the champion in the first edition of Glassology Libbey, inspired me a lot and made me believe that it is possible to achieve this great dream. I believe that a great mixologist should be ahead of his time and perform his work beyond the daily routine. I work daily with some simple concepts and believe that this has helped my work to be highlighted: Create … Serve … Inspire … Always! 

Why do you think you have what it takes to become the new Glassologist?

It’s no secret that one of my great passions is cups and crystals. I have always believed that choosing a beautiful cup is like a frame for a beautiful painting that will become a most valuable work of art. I always dreamed one day of being able to sign and / or create a beautiful piece with an exclusive design as much as to serve my unique and awarded creations. And The Big Day Has Arrived!!!
