I started my career in coffee while studying Public Relations at University but have been around the coffee industry my whole life with my family roasting in Melbourne since the 1950s. I’m someone who has a very physically active lifestyle including daily yoga and meditation practices and find coffee can play such a vital role in assisting with my mental and physical health. I have one coffee a day, always a long black and always in the morning. My palate prefers nuts and caramels and more medium to dark roasted blends. The coffee industry has such a variety of people involved and offers so much freedom which makes for one of the most exciting and talked about aspects of hospitality! My job in coffee has taken me all over the world meeting some of the most fascinating people and I love getting to grow, roast, teach, make and sell coffee! I have worked with Dimattina Coffee for seven years and my role involves all aspects of the industry from barista training, sales and marketing to service technician.
