Marc Marquez is the Coffee Director and Q-Grader at Savor Brands. Savor Brands is located in Downtown Honolulu, HI. During the Pono Collective, students will learn sensory skills commonly used in the coffee industry. There's certain skill sets that are used to grade green coffee as well. Students will be able to develop their palate at the Savor Sensory Lab to be able to evaluate and talk about fragrance, aroma, and learn about the key differences in coffee. Being born and raised in Hawaii, Marc has always been surrounded by coffee and is really excited to be part of the coffee community and be able to share with the students all that we do here! See you all very soon at Pono Collective, Aloha!
