32cup Specialty Coffee Merchants
Cory has been in the specialty coffee industry for 13 years, with a strong emphasis on building equitable, farmer-focused supply chains in both the private and not-for-profit sectors. He started his coffee career with the Technoserve Coffee Initiative in East Africa, working on doubling the income of over 200,000 farmers. From there he moved to Falcon Coffees in the UK as a Senior Trader before recently joining 32cup Specialty Coffee Merchants in Antwerp, Belgium as the Managing Director.
Cory loves the complexity of coffee supply chains and how a day's work can involve everything from agronomy to gastronomy to finance. The biggest influence on his career has been the combined thoughts and aspirations of the thousands of farmers that he has had the privilege to work with. His favorite cup of coffee (so far) is a Honduran coffee roasted by 49th Parallel in Canada.
