About Me:
I am Rob.

I genuinely have a passion for my all things coffee. There are endless things to learn and techniques to improve upon. After three years in the industry, I am just scratching the surface, and I am confident the best is yet to come.

There's also something profoundly satisfying about watching the skills and knowledge I've shared being passed down from barista to barista...There's nothing like watching third-generation knowledge in action... watching velvety micro foam being poured by people who learned from people who learned from me....

As far as personally...I enjoy reading good books, music (playing and listening), the outdoors, film, philosophical discussion, jazz etc. etc.
What is your favorite thing about the coffee industry?
Pouring art for people and education.

I'm wide open on friday up till around 7 or 8pm. No classes, so it's a good day. I'm pretty excited, it would be cool to find a little shop somewhere that wouldn't mind a little after-hours jamming.
