HOW MAYLIN GOT INTO SPECIALTY COFFEE:

Maylin got her start working for Starbucks. After moving to San Diego to pursue her undergrad degree, she found her way back to coffee, gaining exposure to various specialty coffee roasters before eventually being hired by Olam as Jr. Logistics Coordinator.


WHY MAYLIN WORKS IN SPECIALTY COFFEE:

“Specialty coffee is something that any café can take and brand their own way. I'm fascinated by how much flavor is in just a black coffee. I find that in the current century companies are enforcing CSR (corporate social responsibility) and it plays an important factor on how coffee is sourced. I enjoy the various specialty cafes that have their own signature drinks and it's a fulfilling feeling to know that Olam is a part of that process.”
