About the Instructor
Chris Kornman, Education & Lab Manager, Royal Coffee, Inc.
Chris is a seasoned coffee quality specialist, avid writer and researcher, a member of the SCA’s Research Advisory Council, and the Lab & Education Manager at The Crown: Royal Coffee Lab & Tasting Room. His professional experience draws heavily on a decade of experience working at Intelligentsia under Geoff Watts as a QC manager, cupper, educator, green coffee buyer, and roaster, during which time Chris logged thousands of miles across the coffee lands in East Africa and Brazil. His passion for coffee and education has led him to speaking opportunities at Anacafé in Guatemala City, Roasters Guild Sensory Summit at UC Davis, as part of the Academic Agenda for the Café de Colombia Expo, and in front of noisy roasters and slurping coffee tasters across the United States. On weekends, Chris can be found helping at his partner’s Improv Theater in Oakland. He rides a 1986 Schwinn Prelude and plays banjo and trumpet.
