Adam JacksonBey is a competitive barista, a former Barista Guild Executive Council Member, and proud Virgo who’s worked in specialty coffee for 8 years. A notorious sandwich aficionado, he can often be found on #coffeetwitter at odd hours hoping the algorithm will hide his tweets to no avail. He’s also really smart and kind.
I was the Vice Chair of the BGA's Outreach committee last year and I think that the experience reaching out to the local/regional groups around the nation and learning what other groups are doing and how to best help them was enlightening.
I've also worked here in DC on the board of DMV Coffee for the past 5 years doing events like prelims, TNTs, multi-roaster cuppings, happy hours and other social events.
I think the combination of these two things will be extremely helpful, because SCA USA should exist to support regional groups and help them help the coffee people that they know best in their areas.
