My first memory of coffee was when I was around 5 years old. I used to love going grocery shopping with my mom so that I could grind her fresh coffee for the week. It was such a treat getting to play with the big coffee grinder and smelling the fresh beans. From that moment, I was hooked! However, I did not start actually drinking coffee until middle school when I had to be awake at 5:30a.m. When I started drinking coffee, I would add tons of flavored creamer and sugar until it essentially tasted like hot chocolate. I began changing my ways when I was in college. I remember trying my cousin’s coffee made in an Aeropress. It tasted so much better than what I was accustomed to. After that, I started experimenting with a variety of different at home brewing methods. I have tried almost every brewing method and I'm always open to learning new ways of improving my coffee at home. The thing I love the most about coffee is how much coffee has the ability to bring people together. It unites us in a way that no other beverage can. It is something that everyone has in common - we all love a good cup of coffee.
If I am not at work, I am most likely venturing outdoors, attending a concert or traveling with my fiancé (As seen above at Reykjavik Roasters in Iceland). My goal is to one day get to all of the National Parks in the United States.
