ADAM CARPENTER
ROCC
Sucafina, Coffee Education Manager
As a farm boy, I naturally fell in love with the fruit of coffee after my first harvest experience in Costa Rica. From 2004 to 2017 I established myself as a coffee roaster, founding ROCC, and joining the SCA as an AST in every program module. Today, I seek to equip the next generation of coffee professionals to Make Life Better.
