Roaster, Quality Control
Alex’s skills in olfaction (see: smelling things) first came to the attention of Matt, Joe and Stan when he worked as a barista at Joe’s previous business, Octane. These days, if he’s not glued to the roasters and keenly watching the lines, Alex is likely travelling, spending time in nature, or building (from scratch) his very own tiny house. A true craftsman of both house and bean, Alex holds a Q-Grader Certification, the highest possible industry qualification for assessing specialty coffee. Senses to rival the best!
“Coffee, to me, is a window into nature. By understanding coffee, we can understand more about how our interaction with the world can be better balanced and more mutually supportive.”
