Project Description

Lewis Maillardet
United Kingdom

Please tell us a little about yourself: 

I grew up working in a small family run café, just outside Melbourne. I ended up curating 3000 Thieves, a multi-roaster subscription in Australia, before moving to the UK in 2017. I wanted to learn more about the tech side of coffee and landed in my dream job with Mavam, looking after people, machines, and everything in-between.

What are you excited to do in Boston?:

Drink coffee I haven’t made for myself!

Please list the coffee competitions you have participated in, what year they took place, and your results:

UK Brewers Cup 2019 Champion

How do you see the coffee industry changing in the future?:

The coffee industry is incredibly unique in it’s ability to have competing companies share knowledge, resources, and collaborate. I’m sure we’ll see significant collaborations that have a profound effect down the supply chain of coffee, all the way to the farm.

Where do you see yourself in five years?:

Hopefully still making tasty coffee!

Is there anyone you would like to thank or recognize, or who helped you to prepare for the WBrC?:
