Quality Control Manager & Q Grader
With just over a decade of experience in the coffee industry, Rudy specialises in green coffee selection, coffee roasting and quality control procedures; having worked as a consultant for both boutique speciality coffee roasters and large distributors, he has also worked with small-holders and producers in coffee producing countries. Rudy has also previously been a head judge at Barista Championships and Brewer’s Cups at a national level in UK .
In the coffee lab, when not cupping samples, it’s very likely that you’ll find him experimenting with roast profiles, putting unique blends together or dialling in new arrivals on the espresso machine.
A strong believer that there is something to be learnt from everyone regardless of your level of expertise or background, Rudy loves any opportunity to meet new people and be challenged by different ways of thinking. In his spare time, he likes to grab a good novel that takes him to new & exciting places, loves a cold beer after a game and a cheeky burger from Pilgrim’s on the way to the beach.
