I spent five years of my life working for a small coffee company you might have heard of called Starbucks. During that time I worked as a barista, a supervisor, and spent a year working in HR at the corporate office. I discovered corporate America is not for me, but I also discovered a passion for the science behind coffee.

Each bean has distinct flavor profiles, much like wine, and when paired with the right foods these beans sing like a spring canary. 

I no longer work for Starbucks, and I now moderately drink coffee because I developed an extreme sensitivity to the caffeine. Despite these two aforementioned facts I’m proud of the coffee tastings I created once upon a time, and the warm hug of a perfect coffee tasting will forever call to me.
