Hi, my name is Thomas. I started coffee nerd in 2012 out of pure passion for making coffee. I have never worked in the hospitality industry before, but my journey as a hobby barista started very early at the age of 16. I was always interested in the technical part of making coffee, like tuning my grinders and espresso machines and loosing my mind in those many variables when you are dialing in a new coffee and searching for the best recipe. And this is it like it is still today.
