About The Coach
Coffeebar was born in Truckee, CA in 2011, and has since expanded to eight stores from the San Francisco Bay Area to Reno, Nevada. This expansion couldn’t have happened without a strong culture around education – and being badass hospitalians!
With a growing wholesale program and increasing demand for public coffee education from our communities, we’re now focusing our attention on sharing our wealth of knowledge.
Coffeebar’s education program is led by our Education and Innovation Manager Becky Tachihara and Barista Hustle Coach Matt Brown. Becky has helmed Coffeebar’s internal barista education program since 2017. She’s dabbled in many areas of the coffee industry – including participating in two USBC qualifier events – but found her niche in education, with a primary focus on café-centric barista and hospitality skills. Matt comes from Sydney, Australia, where he managed public specialty coffee schools for over 15 years. He’s dedicated a lot of time to learning the science behind quality and repeatability, and has written many equipment reviews, hosted industry events, and for his last 18 months in Australia worked under Dr. Adam Carr, Phd., a chemical engineer, as the education manager in the Coffee Science and Education Center at 7 Miles Coffee Roasters.
