We had the good fortune of connecting with Djosefin Maurer-Soto and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Djosefin, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
Attention to detail and personal connection with my costumers.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I deeply emphasize the use of organic simple ingredients and have formed a strong relationship with my community. My main challenge was perfecting my recipe. It was a lot of trial and error and to be honest, I often felt like giving up. I am lucky in that I have a very supportive family and a wonderful group of friends, always encouraging me to keep going. The most important lesson I have learned is that of patience. I would love for the world to know, never to give up on your dreams. Always be curious.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I dedicate my shoutout to my wife who has been the one encouraging me to try out new things and helped me find the passion for baking that i didnt know i had and who told me to keep trying when i got discouraged because my loaves kept coming out flat.
