I started my journey at Topeca Coffee Roasters as a full-time barista. I have a passionate love affair with coffee and had to learn the science behind great coffee. During my time at Topeca, I had the ability to encounter their target market everyday and learned to understand their customers on a deeper level. After working in Topeca's coffee shops for a year, I transitioned back into design full-time. Shortly after, my departure the Gaberino's, owners of Topece Coffee, came to me with a proposition to rejuvenate the coffee brand. Topeca was making exceptional, high-rated coffee with unbelievable story, and few people knew their coffee exisited yet alone their coffee.
