I’m a navigating officer in the merchant navy. Getting introduced to specialty coffee was a serendipitous encounter when I purchased a bag of Blue Mountain Coffee while traveling through the Caribbean and there was no looking back. I was so intrigued that I started voraciously reading about coffee. Some of my work on the science and know-how of specialty coffee can be found on my blog Darkroastedmatter. I’m a certified brewer from the Specialty Coffee Academy and also a sucker for aviation, astrophysics and drumming. I Have travelled 6 out of 7 continents, but Mumbai (India) is what I call home.
