Spilling the (coffee) beans


An iced Americano aficionado with a knack for perfecting the craft of coffee making, Chris Johnston, barista trainer at Valentine Coffee Co., wakes up around 4 a.m. daily. After a comedy sketch and a bowl of oatmeal, he’s on his way to foster the talent of Valentine’s employees and provide quality assurance to wholesale clients.

“Any day that starts with laughter is a good day to me,” said Johnston. “My greatest achievement is seeing the baristas I’ve trained flourishing and knowing that I played a part in their development. I’m humbled every day by these talented individuals,” he says.
