    Chief Caffeine Director

    "Coffee is a ritual, a guilt free treat that you can enjoy everyday. It's also the sustenance to nearly 10% of the world's population.”

    Slawek is the founder and CEO of iDrinkCoffee. Although his educational background is in English literature, he has been working in sales for nearly 20 years and in the coffee game since 2009. There is no choice for Slawek to be involved in all aspects of the business and be completely hands on- this is his dream job! But no matter how full his days are, he still finds time to spend with his wife and two adorable children.

    Slawek’s top picks are the Slayer Single Group and anything else that makes a perfect cortado.

    Disclaimer: When asked to divulge his coffee charisma and reveal his top picks, Slawek could not be held to just one or two. He went on to explain that he tends to like the lighter roasts and coffees that are bright and fruity. He admitted that it was too hard for him to nail down but recollected that the very first specialty coffee exposed to him was Ethiopian Harrar; “it was like nothing I had ever tasted before and opened my mind (and my palate) to what coffee can be.”
