Every step of the way, from sampling, to roasting, to brewing, it’s the talent and the passion of our team that makes Greenstreet Coffee so special. So, let’s introduce you to the team….
Co-Founder / Coffee Roaster / Dedicated Entrepreneur
Before starting Greenstreet Coffee, Chris completed his undergraduate degree from Temple University in Finance. Chris likes brewing pour over coffee and when not roasting coffee he can be found hanging out with his 18 month old son, cycling, or listening to featured bands on Spotify. Chris has enjoyed living in Philadelphia for the past 9 years.
Chris has visited 6 coffee producing countries and would like to visit them all.
Café Manager / Barista
Northern New Jersey born and raised. The second son of Don and Diane, with an appreciation for the hand crafted, pursued a degree in art at Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University. He graduated in 2015 with a BFA in Printmaking and a newly discovered obsession with the world of third wave coffee. Two years later, that obsession would come to fruition 1,200 miles south in sunny West Palm Beach, FL at Subculture Coffee Roasters. There he learned the art of espresso and peaked an interest in roasting. Another two laps around the sun and his pilgrimage to the endless summer complete, the bearded brother of Kris returned to the Northeast. Settling in the south of Philadelphia and picking up the torch here at Greenstreet. You can find him slinging spro and stacking tulips at 11th and Spruce, roasting those juicy juicy beans over on Alter St., or out shooting through a roll of film.
Barista / Production Assistant/ Sales
Attending Drexel University, Avery began to understand the landscape of Philadelphia. In the years following, his passion for coffee became apparent to him and his peers. He completed his degree in 2017 and started working at Greenstreet shortly thereafter. In the coming years, he would grow and develop his skillset immensely. First, by learning production in the wholesale coffee business. Second, by roasting and learning how to develop flavor profiles for specific coffees. And finally, by mastering skills necessary to become a barista. His well-roundedness allows him perspective and understanding of the entire process, from bean to cup. Outside of work you can find Avery on hikes, watering all his plants, and finding excuses to turn anything into exercise.
