Director of Quality Control and Business Development
Origin: Colorado Springs, Colorado
Josh has been working in the coffee industry since 2006 in every facet, from barista, to training and managing. This experience eventually lead him to the creation of the consulting agency: Northern Colorado Barista Training. Through this agency, Josh has worked with coffee shops along the Front Range helping with everything from site scouting to day-to-day operations and business improvements.
In 2012, Josh relocated to Minnesota to work in Wholesale Sales and Accounts Management for Dogwood Coffee Company. He made a mark as a successful competition barista in the Specialty Coffee Association of America’s U.S. Barista Competition Circuit.
By 2015, Josh moved back to Denver to join forces with Novo Coffee. He now helps the company and its wholesale customers improve their coffee quality, therefore improving their businesses. As if these accomplishments aren’t enough, he also invented the Rattleware Cupping Brewer.
Josh loves spending time in the beautiful Colorado outdoors by fly fishing, hiking, and mountain biking.
Josh’s favorite Novo coffee is the San Sebastian, for its consistency. It is also a very high quality coffee that has excellent sweetness, a unique story, and never fails to be delicious!
