Meet Katherine

Head Roaster

Assistant Manager, Disco Aficionado and Head Groundskeeper

Katherine was born and raised in our fair city of Seattle 27 (and change) years ago.  

Her interests include: eating, reading comics (sometimes other things), listening to records, urban farming, and the dream of raising rabbits for food some time in the future. 

She studied English Literature at the Evergreen State College (not the biggest waste of time, but close!) and is parent to a cat-child.

She came into the coffee world by chance and somewhat reluctantly, but now that she's a part of Tin Umbrella she couldn't imagine being anywhere else. She loves being a part of the Hillman City community almost as much as she likes finishing off the last of the half-n-half wherever she goes.
