This is Andrew. He is Cafe Imports' founder.
He has been importing coffee into Minneapolis since 1993, when he and his Brazilian friend bought their first container of Serra Negra. He has been losing money and/or hair ever since, but continues to love the subtleties and adventure of coffee and the insanity of running a small business. He claims to be an accomplished specialty-coffee roaster and cupper.
Andrew lives on a small farm in Wisconsin with his darling wife, their three bratty kids, a cow, horses, some dogs, a gaggle of chickens and a skunk that was not invited. His hobbies include the great outdoors, literature, gardening, cooking, wine, and tickling his children.
