What’s your coffee background?
After college, my friend and I ran a coffee business in the Bay Area. When I moved back to Orange County, that’s when I found ChocXO.
How did you find it?
Is your job more coffee or more chocolate?
Both. My real job, however, is with the guests. I treat people how I would like to be treated.
What do you want customers to know about your coffee?
The quality of our single-origin espressos is incredible.
What’s your drink?
I go for a single-origin pour-over in the morning, and different combinations of espressos and dark chocolates in the afternoon.
