Profile Information

What is your position in the coffee industry?
coffee roaster, industry professional, consultant
Where are you located? ( City and Country )
San Antonio, Texas, USA
How many years have you been in the industry?
I have six years in specialty coffee including work as a barista and retail management, and currently as a roaster.
If you are a barista or shop, are you interested in a barista exchange with another coffee shop/barista?
Tell us more about your coffee shop or barista skills.
The best thing I have to offer is some roasting and cupping experience, as well as the opportunity to see what a growing, one-man roasting operation looks like (sampling, cupping, buying, web-retail, shipping and marketing).
What cities or countries are you interested in traveling to?
About Me:
With six years of experience on both the retail and wholesale sides of the coffee industry, Aaron takes pride in exceptional customer service. He enjoys sourcing under the radar coffees that raise eyebrows and works hard to develop intricately nuanced flavor characteristics from each coffee in his lineup.

Outside of coffee, Aaron enjoys reading history, theology and geopolitical books and blogs. He has been married for ten years to the best wife in the world and has recently taken the mantle of home educator for his two amazing children. And every spring his eyes grow wide at the expectant wonder of another baseball season.
About My Company:
Dude, we just built our very own 20 lb roaster from spare parts!

I have had a hard time getting a dependable barista. I have been working 10 hours a day because of it. Still trying to grow the business. We hit a wall for a few months, but now that summer hit we are starting to see an increase in business. Started cold brewing as well. My customers really like it because it has 70% acidity. I use it for ice coffees, lattes and frappés.

Hey Aaron how goes it? Been busy myself. I just added some outdoor seating. You can see a pic on my profile. Hope all is well.
