Tell us something about you:
My previous career (most everyone in coffee seems to have a previous career) was in TV broadcasting and advertising. I stumbled into voice over work while producing commercials and directing broadcast sports. From there I somehow ended up in front of the camera. One of my most rewarding experiences was working on documentaries for the NGO Water for Sudan. Totally different experience than broadcast work.
What excites you most about coffee?
The evolution of brewing technology in the last few years opens up a new world of control and flavor. Put together with amazing specialty coffees there’s something for everyone.
What does Dalla Corte do differently from other espresso machine companies?
It’s all about the flow! Seriously there are so many variables in espresso. I’ve used a lot of machines and DC’s standout with the best control and repeatability.
