Interview Questions

Tell us something about you:

Coffee has been my career since I graduated from college in 2012. I never expected that I would have gone as far down the rabbit hole as I have, but I’m happy to have ended up in such a fascinating industry. Originally, I went to school for broadcasting and picked up a writing degree while I was at it. I love the products and technology involved in brewing coffee, playing with it (I own close to 15+ devices!), and telling people about it. Deep down I secretly love performing and being on camera.

What excites you most about coffee?

It’s got to be a mix of both the people and the products. I’ve never met somebody in the coffee industry who wasn’t incredibly passionate about what they were doing. On the flip side, the constant innovations and innovators mean that there’s always something, or someone, new to discover.

More Interview Questions

What does Dalla Corte do differently from other espresso machine companies?

I think it's mostly that they embrace technology in ways that makes sense. They're pushing the envelope of espresso brewing by emphasizing flow control as a key variable in extraction. The real excitement I’ve seen from people who experience flow rate control for the first time is incredibly satisfying. It's like a switch is flipped for them and suddenly coffee makes that much more sense!

What are you good at?

I have a really good memory for specific details and I like to think that I'm also a patient and thorough teacher. A lot of my time is spent thinking about how and why people drink coffee and the ways that I can help them do it better. I love thinking of things that people didn’t know they wanted, playing board games, and making spreadsheets.

What is your go-to coffee drink in the morning?

At home: Local coffee in a French press or Aeropress. At the office: Americano.
