Let me share my love for coffee with you. At 2-years old, I power-launched myself across a kitchen table to drink the amazing smelling coffee on the other side. I was disappointed when it didn’t taste the same as it smelt. From that day forward, I have been on a mission to create the perfect cup.
First, I focused on barista skills, and meeting my mentor Pauly Smith, I also studied cocktails. Pauly supported me to become third in the National Barista Championships and second in the National Cocktail Championships. I judge competitions now, trying to inspire the next generation with my enthusiasm.
Adding to my brewing experience, Nepresso's international training programme for Managers opened up the world of blending. I created my first blend. But I was disappointed again when I took it to Taiwan and it didn't taste right. What was different? I went back to basics - humidity and temperature - key attributes in brewing coffee. That started a new quest to blend and brew coffee that tasted great in Taiwan (or any high humidity country) as well as New Zealand.
Finally I found it, working with Immigrants Son, a fantastic Wellington Roastery. Now I’m joined by Coffee Reporters in my love and passion to perfect my cup (of any beverage) and help you perfect yours. Meet our Coffee Reporters below.
