Instructor: Steve Hoffman

Stephen works as Director for Coffee at One Village Coffee. He got started as a barista in the early aughts and worked his fair share of shifts in Philly cafes over the years. He set off the smoke alarm on his very first home roast, but was undeterred and eventually started roasting professionally in 2013. Thousands of batches later and his shop vac skills are really coming along! In 2017 he fulfilled a longtime goal of becoming a certified Q Grader.
