Starting out as a barista at a bay area coffee institution his love for coffee ignited after consuming an over dosed 8 cup French press of Sumatra promptly followed by a discussion of its rustic, earthy, caramel charm with a customer. Since then he has worked as a Coffee Roaster, Green Coffee Buyer, Director of Quality Control, and plant manager.
Brian has developed roasting, packaging and quality control programs as well as developing several product lines.
In the past six years since joining InterAmerican Brian still marvels at the relationships and bonds he has formed over a cup of coffee wherever his travels take him. Brian is a licensed Q grader and when not drinking, thinking or talking about coffee he likes to build and rides motorcycles and play music.
