Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) April 29, 2015
Matt Herren has recently joined the NE Minneapolis-based coffee company, bringing a competent mix of technical skills, coffee knowledge, and business acumen to UP Coffee Roasters. With his prior experience as owner of Goshen Coffee Company and 222 Artisan Bakery in Illinois, and equipment sales for Alexis Foods of Oregon, Matt is poised to advance UP Coffee Roasters as a full-service coffee equipment resource.
UP Coffee Roasters is thrilled to add Matt’s unique experience and style to the growing team. As founder of Goshen Coffee in Edwardsville, Illinois, Matt hand-built the fluid bed roaster the company still uses today and developed a loyal following for his organic roasted coffee. Throughout the 12 years that Matt was at the helm of Goshen Coffee, Goshen was named Best Coffee in St. Louis by the following publications: Sauce Magazine, Feast, the Riverfront Times, and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
“I’m very excited to welcome Matt to the UP team. His passion and skill set are unmatched in the industry. Matt’s timely arrival makes an immediate impact on on our ability to provide the best possible service to our customers. This is a great match and we are excited to see this new part of our business develop and grow UP in the Twin Cities region and beyond,” says David Chall, Director of Operations.
