Tim Griffin, owner of Young Blood Coffee Co., believes that you owe it to your customer to apprentice under a master of your craft before launching into business yourself.

After more than a decade of working in the specialty coffee industry, for the likes of Stumptown and Four Barrel, Griffin has arguably subjected himself to learning from the best baristas and roasters in the country. 

“Go through the hard work, and put yourself under the training that is the best that you can find,” Tim advised.
