Maxwell Colonna-Dashwood

MD , Colonna Coffee & Peak Water

My coffee career began in Australia working bar in Melbourne and from the that point on, I have been fascinated with how incredible coffee can taste. 

My work has lead me all over the world, participating in some incredible projects all in pursuit of that goal. 

Barista competitions provided me with a greater understanding of the complexities surrounding coffee and from that platform I have founded several businesses that aim to improve coffee quality – from the co-authoring of my book, water for coffee, to the launch of the world’s first specialty coffee capsules, to the imminent launch of Peak Water.

Today I am increasingly involved with further innovation & new product development surrounding coffee technology as well as continuing to run our roasting business, Colonna.
