Hello coffee lovers and enthusiasts alike! My name is Justin, but you can call me JB. Hailing from St. John’s, Newfoundland, I arrived in Ottawa just a few weeks ago and I’m pretty excited to be the new Head Barista here at Grounded. Aside from long walks on the beach and playing Ultimate Frisbee, coffee is a passion of mine. Believe it or not, St. John’s has some great coffee shops, and it’s definitely a destination for any coffee and food lover. Much of my knowledge about coffee has come from my time spent working at some of the best coffee shops in Newfoundland and visiting coffee farms in Central America, but every day I continue to learn something new about coffee. Whether it’s about home brewing methods, single-origins, or straight up espresso, I’d be more than happy to share what I know and even be taught a few things! Come on by Grounded, introduce yourself, and let’s talk coffee.
