As Counter Culture Coffee’s Buyer and Sustainability Manager, Kim Elena constantly strives to improve the quality of coffee she is able to buy and roast, and to develop and strengthen relationships with producing partners all over the world.
When did you discover that you wanted to be a coffee buyer and sustainability manager?
It’s usually a pretty nasty discovery when you pour a cup of coffee from the office coffee pot after it has been sitting a bit too long.
You know the feeling. You put the cup of hot coffee to your lips, ready to let the warm liquid do its magic to wake you up and get your moving. But instead, the coffee is so bitter you almost gag. On the plus side, you are awake! Just not the way you were planning to get there.
So what happened?
Blame it on too much exposure.
