Mike’s first encounter with coffee began at 16, watching the world cup in the wee hours of the morning, drinking coffee to stay awake. His defining coffee epiphany struck him a few years later after being blown away by an Indonesia Blu Batak. 11 years later, Mike is now a qualified food chemist, Q Grader and award winning roaster. Like many in the coffee game, he has a passion to learn more about coffee farming and loves traveling to origin whenever he can. Mike loves to experiment with coffee, optimising roast profiles to get the very best out of our single origins and crafting small batch seasonal blends that shine in the cup. When Mike is not behind the roaster or cupping our latest deliveries, you’ll probably find him surfing in Sumatra, snowboarding or hanging out with Pepi, his beloved pet rabbit.
