After leaving school, I was unsure what I wanted to do in life. So, despite hating coffee at the time, I found a job in a local coffee bar. I quickly fell in love with it and the coffee industry as a whole.
I could see that there was a lot of room for improvement in the coffee world, so two years after I started working in the coffee bar I set up a mobile coffee business (The Wacka Wagon Co). Although this was tough, it was extremely rewarding and I massively enjoyed the challenge of running my own business. Always looking for the next challenge and to grow my business, I knew the next step was to begin roasting coffee, which I did last year. This was the launch of Wacka Espresso.
I love the idea of young creatives working together to produce something new. With Aisling and Dylan on board with the business and with the opening of our first coffee house in Wimbledon (8 Leopold Road), I'm sure Wacka Espresso is in for an exciting 2019.
Favourite coffee: Black drip coffee
