How Long Have You Worked in The Coffee Industry?

17 years. I began my first barista job in January 2003.

What Was Your First V60 Encounter?

The first V60 I had was in around 2007-2008, when single cup brewing started becoming more popular in the US.

Why Do You Love the V60?

I love the clarity of flavour and the tendency toward vibrant tasting notes. The V60 filter makes for easy usage, and Hario has been very supportive in the Specialty coffee industry.

A Message for Hario

You have always been supportive of the barista community. Thank you for being willing to work with me on my ideas for great new products! The integrity and quality that I find in HARIO is second to none, and I am happy to use Hario products any time!
