I entered the world of coffee from a social & development point of view. I studied Developmental Economics and began by designing sustainable development models for small coffee and cocoa producers in Central & South America and in Southeast Asia. My interest in effectively integrating small producers into global coffee value chains led me to focus on the sensory and quality aspects of coffee. Currently, I work in Origin Innovation and Upstream Development for Sucafina and as a CQI instructor and SCA trainer. Currently based in Vietnam.
Provide any Sucafina origin research, insight and guidance on coffee cherry processing, establishing processing innovation trials to improve commercial viability of coffee; liaise with potential partners for AI and automated QC; training and education worldwide; upstream development strategies in Asia.
