About Me:
I am an older kid who is thirsty for more great coffee and more coffee knowlege. I am the Coffee Program Developer for Dillanos Coffee Roasters and have been with the company for nearly 4 years. You have probably seen me at CoffeeFest snapping the photos for the Millrock Latte Art Contest or at the Dillanos Booth. I love coffee. Plain and simple. I love the fact that this is an industry that will truely allow you to be yourself and not shackle you for it. You can be as crazy as you wanna and you can still succeed. You can't say that about most jobs.
About My Company:
We are always trying to get involved in more and more aspects of the coffee industry. Dillanos Coffee Roasters has been a member of SCAA for over 10 years. Not only have our employees written article for every coffee magazine out there, we have volunteered time at The Annual Conference as Room Hosts, Station Instructors and Speakers. Our Director of Coffee, Phil Beattie serves on the Roasters Guild Executive Council and has been a judge at many Cup of Excellence auctions. A lot of our other employees are members of the Barista Guild. We have been running the Millrock Latte Art Contest and have been key contributors in the Business Seminar at every Coffeefest in America and will be doing the same at the upcoming show in Hong Kong. Also, on three separate occasions, Roast Magazine has recognized us as one of the top three finalists in their annual Roaster of the Year issue.
What is your favorite thing about the coffee industry?
