Byron Dote has been sharing his interest in roasting small batches of coffee since 2010. As Sweet Maria’s Marketing Manager, he develops content for their constantly overflowing website and manages their social media channels while finding time to lead coffee roasting demonstrations around the SF Bay Area. When not drinking coffee and gazing into LED computer monitors, Byron hunts for burritos, hangs out with dogs and runs slowly around Lake Merritt.
Sweet Maria’s Coffee imports the best green coffee from around the world and sells it online to home coffee roasters. Sweetmarias.com, is a home roasting store and an endless source of coffee information. Based out of their Oakland, CA warehouse Sweet Maria’s also sells roasting accessories and runs their wholesale business, Coffee Shrub.
