I am a passionate coffee enthusiast and a seasoned entrepreneur with a strong background in the coffee industry. With over 20 years of experience, I have embarked on an exciting journey to revolutionize the way we experience coffee. As the founder and CEO of Gulden Group, I have had the pleasure of building a thriving coffee brand from the ground up. I am fueled by my love for the art of coffee-making and the desire to deliver exceptional coffee experiences to aficionados and newcomers alike. My mission is to share the world of specialty coffee with every cup brewed, one customer at a time. Coffee Roasting and Blending: I possess extensive expertise in sourcing, roasting, and blending premium coffee beans. My commitment to quality ensures that each batch of coffee we produce is a delightful symphony of flavors and aromas. Coffee Shop Management: Throughout my journey, I have successfully established and managed multiple coffee shops in the USA, Colombia, Turkey and Chile. Elevated the café experience through attention to detail and outstanding customer service. In 2002 at the heart of Chicago, I opened my first café called Bel’Odore. In 2006 started operating in New Jersey for east coast operations. In 2009 opened Colombia’s first Turkish cuisine restaurant and café. In 2011 opened a bistro café at another South American location in Santiago at the capital of Chile. I am currently a member of Grisini coffee brand and work as a General Manager day-to-day work in the company. At this moment we have four locations in New Jersey. I take pride in sharing my knowledge through coffee workshops and training programs. My goal is to empower coffee professionals and enthusiasts to master the craft and appreciate the intricacies of coffee. Sustainability is at the heart of my business philosophy. I actively work towards creating positive impacts on coffee-producing communities, ensuring ethical sourcing practices and supporting fair trade initiatives. In Grisini we adopted a coffee farm from Colombia which is part of the Coffee Cultural Landscape, declared by UNESCO as a World Cultural Heritage Site. We are buying directly from the farmers cutting out both traditional middleman buyers and sellers and also the organizations.
