Next time you’re in our Schnitzelburg store, grab a coffee and ask Lauren about her art!

 

 

Not only does she create her own art, she plans to back to school for art education. In fact, she’s already spent some time working with high school art students this year, which has given her the teaching bug.

 

“When you get to have a conversation with her, she is so interesting,” says Ella, the store manager.  “She’s so talented, yet incredibly modest!”

Meet Our Roaster: Alec Risch

In Blog, Meet Your Barista, Spotlight On: // on March 24th, 2017 // by // No comment

Tell me a little bit about your job – for those who don’t know, what does a head roaster’s job at Heine Brothers’ entail?

I’m the Head Roaster and green coffee buyer for HB.  Most of my day is spent in production, or overseeing production (i.e. quality control, inventory management, and facilitating communication among my staff or with cafe managers).  I’m also the liaison between HB and our importing co-op, Cooperative Coffees.  Specifically, I am on the Sourcing and Quality, and Cooperative Impact committees.  Depending on the projects we’re working on it takes only 5-10% of my time, but that work drives how we maintain relationships with our farming partners, and how we impact their lives beyond simply cutting a check for green coffee once a year.
