Meet Jared Dennison, Barista, Trainer & Lab Assistant at Wonderstate Coffee in Viroqua, Wisconsin.
Jared is also a full-time dad with a three years old son. After 11 years in the coffee industry, what has he learned, what motivates him, and what tips he has for the baristas?
We asked Jared what coffee means to him, he answers:
“Coffee is constant change and reinvention, it's my punk rock. Something ubiquitous and wholly unique. It's a platform for me to communicate something to those I serve. With coffee, I can take this mutual language of taste and share experiences and passion in a way that words or even images can't communicate. Coffee is so much more to me than just a morning routine or "hot brown" it's literal passion in a cup.”
Jared is also one of the recipe contributors of the Brewing Guide project, check out his go-to Aeropress recipe here
