As the son of a tea merchant,I have been involved in the NZ tea and coffee industry my entire life.
Some of my earliest memories are of the bulk storage warehouse at dads company 'Wilcocks Tea'.
My first hands on experience with roasting coffee came in 1985 at age 14 on dads original 3 kg Swadlo roaster.
After working at various coffee companies of my fathers over the years, I went out on my own starting my first coffee company 'Beverage Services Ltd' in 1997 and 10 years later started Roma Coffee in 2007.
I am a die hard rugby supporter - A.B's, Chiefs, Counties.
My hobbies include collecting antique coffee equipment, brewing craft beer, and growing giant tomatoes.
