I improvem coffee quality throughout the supply chain by empowering people with knowledge about the coffee plant, the industry, and cup quality. On the production side, I help farmers and processors take ownership of the coffee production process and understand how their decisions influence the end product. On the consumption side, I facilitate learning for businesses and consumers through custom seminars, workshops, classes, tours, one-on-one tutorials, and written educational material. I also assess coffee and coffee products through cupping or other means, providing rigorous technical feedback about the product and its potential in the marketplace. My goal is to elevate global coffee culture by helping folks commit to excellence.
