Scott Marshall - Writer
I've been an avid coffee drinker since my schooldays, and worked as a barista throughout university, where I really fell in love with the art of coffee rather than just using it as a wake up tool. I love seeing how different cultures enjoy this simple drink and how it can bring people together. I'm also a keen musician and rower in my spare time.

It was there that she developed an interest in coffee - especially hot lattes which helped get her through the winter. In her later years, Karmy moved to Melbourne, fully immersing herself in the world of coffee, beans, and the roasting process.
