With 25+ years spent in commercial kitchens and over 20 years as a salaried Chef, my progression into coffee seemed only natural. With a well trained palate and the knowledge that it takes taste and aroma working together in unison to create a desirable flavor experience, I fell in love with the complexity of the roasting and brewing processes. Finally, my inner geek and control-freak personalities had found a sandbox that they could play together in, outside of a kitchen.
