About Scott Maginnis

“Using skills that I learned while cooking in Europe and America, I developed a roasting technique that relies on high heat to start, then progresses to a slow, even finish. I worked in restaurants during my twenties, first in Paris, then in Los Angeles at the top-rated Citrus, where I honed my technique of using smell, taste, touch and sight to create dishes. These techniques are the foundation of my roasting style.

Starting a coffee business has been a dream of mine for many years. My other career, working as a property master on such films as Inception and Girl With a Dragon Tattoo, kept me busy, but roasting coffee is my next adventure. – Scott
