I'm a former National Team athlete who tried coffee on 3 continents. I enjoyed the nuanced taste of high quality coffee and the connection I built with others around the world. It compelled me to begin a small e-commerce business that helped local roasters sell their coffee direct to consumers.

I've since moved to Austin where I work in the tech industry and own an industrial coffee roaster in my apartment. I run a D2C coffee business as a passion project and mainly roast for my friends and myself. Come roast and brew coffee with me on some amateur and professional gear! We'll learn how to roast and brew high quality coffee at home, learn more about each other, and get rather caffeinated :)

This takes place in my spacious apartment that I enjoy sharing with guests. We will roast outside on the patio with the popcorn popper and be inside for the rest of the experience.

Eric is very passionate and knowledgeable. It was lots of fun learning about coffee roasting. And we got to keep all the coffee we roasted!!!

Amazing experience! We learned some great roasting methods and a bit of the science behind it. Definitely some great takeaways for the new or experienced hobby roaster and coffee lover to try at home. Eric was very personable with guests and highly knowledgeable about the roasting techniques, answering so many questions and providing a unique experience. Highly recommend!

I highly recommend this experience. This was one of the highlights of the visit to Austin for my Mom and I. If you are a coffee drinker or have an interest in learning about coffee (I am not a big coffee drinker but was interested in learning), you will walk out of this experience understanding the basics of coffee all while having some fun and tasting good coffee. I appreciated Eric's thoughtfulness in how he organized the time, attention to detail, and willingness to answer any question.

This was an awesome experience! I learned so much about roasting, had delicious coffee, biscuits, and had lots of fun conversations! Highly recommended for both those looking to learn how to roast their own coffee and those who are just looking for a cool experience!

This coffee experience was incredibly informative and super-enjoyable! We started out informally talking about what we knew about the bean-to-coffee process and what we wanted to know! Eric and Ryan taught us in an informal, fun, conversational way about the different types of beans, different ways to process beans, the different flavor profiles depending on how the beans are roasted, and the different ways to prepare coffee and espresso. We not only got to enjoy lots of coffee, but we also all got to roast our own beans in 2 different ways and take home 4 bags of freshly roasted beans! The whole afternoon felt like hanging out with old and new friends! I highly recommend this experience for an afternoon of fun and education! I will never look at coffee the same way again! Now I feel like a coffee snob!!!! And had so much fun!!!!!!!!
