I am a 2-time UK Coffee in Good Spirits Champion, a Q-Arabica grader (licensed professional coffee taster) and I coached the 2017 World Coffee in Good Spirits Champion. I have judged the World Barista Championship and been the master of ceremonies for coffee championships across Europe. I am a World Coffee Events AllStar and I’ve made coffee on 5 continents. I’ve been working in coffee for over 16 years now, from multinationals to small Indies.
I’ve been responsible for coffees that have won over 40 Great Taste Award stars since 2017... I’m a green coffee buyer, blender, roaster, taster and talker... I absolutely love what I do. I love coffee.
Speciality Coffee can seem very confusing. Washed, Natural, Hybrid, Carbonic Maceration. It’s easy to feel like you’re trying to decipher a hidden code. My goal is to help to demystify Speciality Coffee and make it more approachable, without losing those interesting stories. I’ve bought, blended, roasted, tasted, sold, made and talked about coffee for over 16 years, from Welders in Wokingham to World Champions in West Hampstead.
I’ll source great quality, interesting speciality coffee to help you get to the point where you’ll be able to make the coffees you love from your local speciality coffee shop in the comfort of your kitchen.
I promise never to tut, roll my eyes or leave you with weird jargon that I haven’t explained.
I promise that I’ll always have delicious coffees that are sourced with the welfare of the planet and the producers in mind. Because I’ll be drinking them too.
