Will Corby, The Caffeine Kid
Once bitten by the coffee bug, I now travel the world in search of the best tasting beans to share with you.
My aim? To bring the best coffee to the public pallet, regardless of cost or exclusivity.
I have worked in the coffee industry since 2005 and have held many roles, from sales to service, tasting to training. I’ve earned accolades including Barista Champion of the North and Midlands in 2010 and London and the South East in 2011.
I offer consultancy and training for all audiences, from aspiring home baristas to Michelin-starred restaurants, teaching the skills required to brew perfect espresso and pour sweet, creamy latte art.
As a Coffee Hunter with Mercanta, my work involves tasting, sourcing and buying the World’s best coffee, as well as working closely with roasters in espresso development and support.
Where am I?
You can find me in Cardiff every Sunday at Riverside Farmers’ Market
(Fitzhamon Embankment, opposite Millennium Stadium, CF11 6AN)
