Your daily cup of coffee impacts the world.

I write articles about people, places, cultures and the production chain of coffee in different countries around the world.


I’m dedicated to sustainable change in the coffee industry.

I grew up on a coffee plantation in Zimbabwe. You could say coffee is in my blood. I’ve lived it, studied it and worked in it.

Changes are necessary in the global coffee production chain. And sustainable change is the best way to achieve this.

What do you think? We should talk.
