Ben is something of a coffee fanatic. His dad even named Ben's signature drink (16g of beans, extracted 25g-30g of liquid in 28-30 seconds, drop half a teaspoon of raw sugar right into the steaming pitcher along with 2-3oz of milk and steamed to a drinkable and fluffy texture) "The-Ben-Piff-Bullseye". Ben's experience in roasting coffee at home, as well as buying, rebuilding, and selling espresso machines makes him the perfect fit in outfitting your home with everything you'll need for great espresso. In his spare time, Ben spends time with his wife and two kids, takes pictures of vintage cars, and rides bmx at Portland's skateparks.
