Kahawa Diaries with Marek Fuchs

written by Eugene Mburu 19th December 2014


Marek Fuchs is the manager of the award winning local band, Sauti Sol. The way he takes his coffee tells us that he’s a no nonsense person who likes to keep good balance in all the things he does.

How do you take your morning coffee?

50/50 milk and coffee (like my home situation), no sugar.

What’s your morning routine?

Wake up at 7am, check emails, news, and social media. Then breakfast. Back to emails and onto meetings. However, this routine is not really a routine because it changes daily just to keep it interesting. (Mainly though because of long nights…ehmm…working)

What do you do to wind down after work?

Boxing and eating.

What’s your favourite pastry?



What’s your ideal way to take a coffee after a meal?

Single, strong espresso with milk on the side.

What are some of the things that inspire you to keep going every day?

My fiancée, friends, and family… and a possible future of owning a wine & olive farm somewhere by the ocean…bliss!

Is there anyone you look up to?

I look up to many people for inspiration, not just the obvious like Mandela, Vaclav Havel, Richard Branson and so on, but also the everyday people surrounding me that deal with the daily hustle and bustle of life. There is a hero in everyone around us.

Who was your role model when you were 14?

Michael Jackson and Arnold Schwarzenegger

What are some major life lessons the music industry has taught you?

You cannot cut corners to get ahead. Hard work pays off. Pledge allegiance to the hustle! And doing what you love and are passionate about is the most important thing in your professional life. Then you can work anytime and anywhere and it’s always fun.
