I was the third generation of my family to be in the coffee business. My father was a green coffee broker and my grandfather ran the coffee division for S&W Fine Foods. I worked as a broker and then as a plant manager for Superior Tea & Coffee in Honolulu, Hawaii. I left the business as a career in my twenties and switched to software development.
My roaster is a Jabez Burns & Sons three barrel sample roaster. My espresso machine is a Quick Mill Vetrano 2B.
