Barista Trainer, Hope & Sesame
Howdy this is Kevin, a first gen Chinese/Taiwanese and Los Angeles native! A former Intelligentsia trainer, Kevin has worked in specialty coffee for about 8 years with experience ranging from education, events, barista, and expert dishwashing. As an active member of LA's coffee community, Kevin feels very strongly about providing space for marginalized and immigrant identities, which make up a huge part of the specialty industry workers. When away from coffee, Kevin enjoys biking to used bookstores, petting dogs, and eating burritos.
