IT Systems Manager

Benjamin made his way across the pond from Seattle, Washington, USA in September 2016 and is in his 21st year in the coffee industry. Department of Coffee was the perfect fit, bringing with him two decades of experience as a barista, in shop management and barista training for various US coffee firms.

His passion outside of coffee has always been within graphic design and web development. For 15 years he has worked as a freelance designer specialising in web, identity, branding and marketing for small business clients.

For Department, he started as a Barista, and in short order has worked his way through many facets of the company to become the IT Systems Manager. In February of 2018, he redeveloped  the Department's Coffee Club Subscription programme and commerce site from the ground up. He also developed the updated website for Afri-CAN Children’s Charity (‘ACC’).
