There’s a lot going on in our little world at the moment. Most important is the people that make up our little fam. Here’s what they’re up to:
- This week we welcomed Jeremy Challender to the team. As ex-owner of Prufrock in London, and a veteran coffee educator, Jeremy is tackling our foray into advanced online coffee courses. 📚🤓 (reply to this email with anything you’d really like to learn from an advanced coffee course)
- Michelle Johnson has left the US and arrived in Melbourne this morning. You already know her as our Marketing Hype Queen - but now she’s on deck! 🐨 If any of you have plans to be in Seoul, Michelle will be there to MC the World Aeropress Championship. She’ll also be at CafeShow (maybe with a Precision Milk Pitcher in her coat) so if you see her, say hi!
- Ayden Graham -founder of our sister tea company Kuura- has spent the last five weeks in China hiking through mountainous Yunnan to source delicious teas from the autumn harvest. Expect delicious and tantalising tea things for sale worldwide shortly.
- Michael and Matt spent last week at the HOST expo in Milan. We were helping Eversys with their super-automatic machines. Tl;dr - we served thousands of espressos with the push of a button and not one person contested that a human barista could’ve done better. The future is coming fast, people.
