He has travelled extensively to origin, beginning with a Brazil Specialty Coffee Association trip back in 2003 at the age of 23 and his first Cup of Excellence competition in Nicaragua in 2004. Since then, he’s been lucky to experience coffee production in Colombia, Peru, Bolivia, Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Burundi and India amongst others.
