Some fresh blood has joined the Kōkako team over the past few months and it's about time we introduced them properly. First off meet Craig. We first met him when he started working at one of our outposts, Charlie and George, in 2013 (he was just 16!). 5 years on he's about to graduate with a Bachelor of Commerce and has joined our team as our Roastery Administrator.
We asked Craig a couple of questions to help introduce himself.
What were you up to before you joined the Kōkako team and what made you go for the job with us?
I've been studying towards a Bachelor of Commerce for the past three years and am graduating this September! Throughout my studies, I worked as a barista - something I always thought would be my "student job". As my knowledge of coffee and the industry grew, I couldn't see myself working a "regular office job", but rather a job that revolves around coffee.
