About Me:
I live coffee. I discovered espresso at the age of 14 and since thenI haven't been the same. I've been involved with coffee my whole adult life working in every aspect of it from being a barista, roaster, coffee buyer and now I live and work on a coffee farm in Hawaii, helping to oversee the development of coffee at all stages from planting, farm management, picking, processing, sorting, storage etc etc. I also work with small farmers on the island helping to improve the quality of their coffees as well as locate buyers as well as doing consulting work in green buying roasting and quality coffee development. Sometimes I eat and sleep too.
About My Company:
Hula Daddy Kona coffee is a coffee farm located just above the town of Kailua Kona. We sell green and roasted coffees from our 34 acres of coffee farms. We have a beautiful visitor center on our lower farm just above town so if anyone is ever on the Big Island please stop by.
What is your favorite thing about the coffee industry?
never a boring moment

Hey Miguel,

It looks like Mike and I will be in Hawaii for up to a month, in the next few weeks. Do you know of any opportunities for us to help out there? I have an MBA and we have 5+ years of coffee retail management experience.

Hey Miguel, just thought I'd drop a line and say hello. I am excited to get to try some of whatever you have been cooking up for some lucky barista in Minneapolis this year. See you at the show.
