I love coffee, so the opportunity to put two 'loves' together was a dream. Rory is not only a superb barista but a 'Coffee Scientist.' What he can conjure with this beans and filtered water is nothing short of spectacular. Before meeting Rory, I wouldn't even entertain the thought of drinking coffee. Up until then, all I knew it to be was the dry roasted and granulated kind.
But, he converted me; turned me to become the avid coffee drinker I now am and an addict who has to have that pot cup of black gold daily.
I have been a customer and have had the pleasure of calling him friend for many years. His launch anniversary is the same day as my eldest son's birthday, which is a wonderful added connection we share and he is the benchmark to which I compare all the coffee I drink.
This shoot was centred around him choosing a shot that would then be used in a national publication, celebrating the numerous coffee houses around the country, of which he was one. And rightly so.
Another shoot looms and I cannot wait.
