Bryan Knotts


Coffee Professional

Hello, I am coffee professional with more than ten year's experience as a barista, a mentor, and an educator. Feel free to contact me if you would like to work together.

Work Experience

I have an extensive background in nearly every aspect of cafe operation. My experience includes high-level barista positions with several major companies each recognized internationally for outstanding product quality, integrity, direct trade, exceptional service, and competition.

At Kaldi's I was responsible for managing the shift, improving guest experience, and overall shop upkeep. Additional tasks included bookkeeping, ordering product, and mentoring staff. Every day at Intelligentsia I would cup multiple coffees and dial-in each across a wide variety of brewers. At Parisi, I was chosen to assist in opening the flagship and to design marketing collateral for colleagues. At Starbucks I was responsible for training a new staff of nine baristas over the course of three months.

My greatest achievement has been developing lasting relationships with guests and coffee professionals through hospitality, education, and community.
