My first cup of coffee was instant, 95% milk and accompanied by a panic written university essay, none of which were enjoyable. From that day, I vowed to myself that whilst procrastination was inevitable, bad coffee definitely didn’t have to be.  

Spending six months travelling around South East Asia, Australia, New Zealand and South America after University, I experienced a whole new concept and culture surrounding coffee. Sitting at a little coffee bar in a small indoor market in Buenos Aires, Argentina, flicking through a menu with all manner of different brew methods and beans to choose from, I felt like I was sat in a caffeine-fuelled science lab. I chose a V60 with Ethiopian beans and it was undeniably one of the best coffees I have tasted. Ever since then I have had my heart set on making exceptional tasting coffee that everyone can enjoy.
