What cities or countries are you interested in traveling to?
Anywhere and everywhere.
About Me:
I love learning and teaching; coffee, music, bikes, and books mostly, but I'm quick to get excited about anything progressive.
About My Company:
Contraband is a local bay area roaster and shop, my second home. Synesso hydra, versalab dual hopper, and some kalita wave pour overs. Nine or ten rotating single origins and a rock solid illicit espresso blend.
Coffee Bar is a rapidly expanding powerhouse of a shop. My location has 2 LM Strada MP's, 2 Mazzer Majors and 2 Roburs, we also tout a slew of kalita waves for the slow bar. Great coffee at breakneck speeds.
What is your favorite thing about the coffee industry?
Learning something new everyday.
