Director of Operations
The move to Minneapolis was a natural progression for a cowboy turned struggling guitar player from south central Iowa. Matt Hupton joined Café Imports in 1999. Since then, he has been involved in all aspects of the company, resulting in his current role as Director of Operations.
The last 13 years at Café Imports have allowed him to travel to origin numerous times and build strong relationships with many producers and exporters, as well as coffee professionals here in the states. He has gained an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the international coffee industry which has proven invaluable in shaping his current world view.
In his free time, Matt enjoys the Twin Cities’ diverse restaurant and music scene and exploring the Minnesota wilderness with his lovely wife and three children.
