Meet Mathew – Our CCO
(Chief Coffee Officer)
I have been working in coffee for over 18 years, starting in Wellington NZ, the spiritual home of specialty coffee and the birthplace of the ‘flat-white’
I have held several positions in the industry from account manager in sales, regional manager of a coffee chain, openings manager for cafe Nero as they were starting to break into the UK coffee market to my most important role to date, co-founder and CCO of HEJ Coffee. This is of course ‘chief coffee officer’ and for me is the best job in coffee anywhere on the planet!
I am a qualified SCA AST trainer and have listed the courses I love to run below. I have managed some interesting accounts such as overseeing the creation of the first UK google coffee lab where I trained over 2000 googlers in the art of creating amazing coffee in the workplace. I have had the pleasure in being involved from the start with the rapid growth of HEJ and RA’s partnership taking it from one site a little over a year ago to a massive twenty six sites and still growing every week.
The three barista courses I can offer as a SCA AST trainer are Introduction to Coffee, Barista skills and Brewing. I am a proud holder of the SCA coffee diploma. Completing this gave me invaluable knowledge and insight to all aspects of the coffee industry from green coffee to roasting and sensory skills. I can highly recommend taking on the challenge of the SCA diploma system.
