OUR TEAM

Marta Dalton

I'm Marta, the CEO and co-founder of Coffee Bird.

 

I'm the farmer/roaster matchmaker. My job is to make sure farmers and roasters connect and are both happy.

 

I help make the coffee magic happen!

My favourite brew method is filter. I'm really proud of all the coffees we work with and will take any of them any day.

Colomba Dalton

I'm Colomba, the co-founder of Coffee Bird.


I dedicate my time to working with our farmers, and finding new ones that produce great coffee and have similar values to us.

I orchestrate the delivery of coffee from farm to port and everything in between. I have worked in coffee for over 50 years.


I love my morning ritual of making an Aeropress, and drink my coffee black!

Thomas Bates

I'm Thomas, and I do whatever needs doing!


As a newcomer to speciality coffee I am loving the commitment of everyone involved - not just to producing great coffee but to having a positive impact right down the supply chain.


I love an Aeropress first thing in the morning, filter to keep me going through the day and espresso any time.

Allan Mauricio Jiménez Garcia

I'm Allan, and I'm the Guatemala lab assistant!


I receive, prepare and roast samples, prep the cupping tables and cup too! I help out in any way I can and support our exports too. 


My favourite coffee is pacamara from Huehuetenango.

Jonathan Lopez Ranagal

I'm Jonathan and I lead the quality control. 


I cup and grade every sample that comes into the lab, and that is exported. When I'm away from the lab, you can find me in the dry mill collecting samples and overseeing the dry milling. 


I am a judge on the Cup of Excellence on both national and international jury panels.

Courtney Snowdon

I'm Courts, and look after our customers in Australia and New Zealand.

 

I started out my coffee career on the tools - as a barista, and the rest is history! I rock my q grader too. 

As a previous customer of Coffee Bird for years, it's great to be part of this incredible movement. I am inspired to nurture an equitable and sustainable supply chain.

My morning coffee is straight up espresso or filter during the week and a flat white on the weekends.

Brian Schaub

I’m Brian, and I look after our customers in the USA.


The first farm I visited impacted my life. I never imagined all the hard work that goes behind a cup of coffee. 

As a Guatemalan, I'm inspired by our family of farmers and am excited to connect them with roasters in the USA. 


I love filter coffee preferably waking up on a coffee farm with the sunrise.
