Marcus Young joins Cropster as Demand Generation Manager

We’re thrilled to announce that Marcus Young has joined us as Demand Generation Manager for Education, Content and Event Creation at Cropster!

 

He'll be working with partners, customers and coffee experts worldwide to help us expand and grow coffee expertise across Cropster and the industry as a part of our mission to deliver better, fairer and more sustainable coffee for everyone. You can read the press release below.

Sacramento, CA, USA - Marcus Young has spent nearly twenty years in coffee. He is motivated to create sustainable economic opportunities throughout the coffee supply chain. Marcus spent the last five years running Boot Coffee Campus as a trainer, director, and consultant, teaching nearly 300 roasters and cuppers each year. He has consulted with roasters, retailers, and coffee producers to grow their businesses through continuing coffee education and experimentation, customer engagement, and coffee-centric events. He is a certified Q Grader and Authorized SCA Trainer.

Marcus’ extensive experience includes work as a trader, buyer, roaster, and barista. As the Director of Business Operations for Sustainable Harvest Coffee Importers, he helped to build a successful roasting business in Rwanda and worked on behalf of farmers and cooperatives on quality control and market access initiatives. Marcus also co-founded Central City Coffee, a social enterprise coffee company providing employment and on-the-job training for employees who were previously homeless. Marcus has been a head judge for the U.S. Barista Competition, has overseen the U.S. Cup Tasters Championship, and now produces natural wine by applying his interest in sensory analysis.

I am excited to help people expand their knowledge of coffee and how technology can help them regardless of their role in the specialty coffee industry. I have personally worked with Cropster’s solutions in a variety of roles. I look forward to showcasing the value of Cropster’s tools that seamlessly integrate quality steps from lot separation on farms through recipe sharing in cafes (and everything in between). I’m especially excited about Cropster’s latest eCommerce integration for web stores. Pulling order and inventory management, roasting insight, and quality control together into one place gives roasters more tools to build successful, efficient, and sustainable companies.
