Nick - Founder, Editor, Coffee Writer

Meet Nick, the coffee aficionado! Nick loves coffee... Actually, he NEEDS coffee! So, he has dedicated his time to learning all he can about this magical bean.

His love for coffee all began when he got a job as a Starbucks barista while studying Architectural Science at college. Since then and for several years now, he has developed his understanding of coffee, what makes the perfect cup, and the different ways to experience this versatile drink! His favorite drink is a flat white with a dash of cinnamon, and he makes a mean flat white if you care to try one!

Nick is always up for a cup of java and loves to find new and unique ways to enjoy his coffee. Plus he loves to share his favorite recipes and coffee hacks with others. Nick’s passion for coffee is never-ending, and he’s always looking for new ways to celebrate this amazing beverage!

Felipe's Author Bio

Felipe - Founder, Editor, Coffee & Tea Writer

Meet Felipe, the tea aficionado and civil engineer! Despite being born in Colombia, Felipe is more of a tea drinker but certainly enjoys his morning cup of coffee.

He was introduced to the world of tea when he lived and taught English in Japan, where he got to learn about the Japanese tea-drinking culture. He has traveled extensively around the world while trying new teas and collecting different types of artisanal tea gear. His favorite teas are Sencha and Pu'er, and his favorite coffee brewing method is the pour-over!

Being an engineer, Felipe is also passionate about how stuff works; lately, he's applying his engineering know-how to research and test all kinds of coffee and tea gadgets, from simple infusers to fancy automatic espresso machines.

Alex - Coffee Roaster, Researcher, Writer

Meet Alex, the curious coffee writer and specialty coffee roaster! During his time living in Brazil, he spent months learning directly from producers how to pick and process coffee the right way. One thing led to the next, and he started sourcing his own green beans to roast and ship worldwide and later became the head roaster at OOP Café in Belo Horizonte.

Currently, Alex is slowly making his way from the United States to Brazil in his camper van, visiting as many coffee farms as possible. If you see him on the road, be sure to say hi!
