Work & Services

In addition to writing the Bear Essentials Blog I offer a few coffee related services. I don’t publish fixed rate prices, after years around coffee I know just how varied needs and limited resources can be. As a result I am always happy to discuss how best to make any work I do strike a balance between value and affordability, based on the needs of the individual or business.

“I will start working when my coffee does” – Universal Truth of My Life


Need some copy for your company website, or coffee literature for your merchandise? Perhaps an article for a magazine or blog? Drop me a line here and I will be more than happy to discuss it with you. I have experience writing in various formats and for diverse audiences, and I am always up for a new challenge.

The fact is, I don’t know where my ideas come from. Nor does any writer. The only real answer is to drink way too much coffee and buy yourself a desk that doesn’t collapse when you beat your head against it” – Douglas Adams

Training, Mentoring & Consultancy

Bear Essentials provides tailored assistance to coffee companies and individuals in the industry. This can take the form of group training, individual consultancy or one to one mentorship.

“Why, yes I could start my day without coffee. But I like being able to remember things like how to say words and put on pants” -Nanea Hoffman


I am happy to curate tasting and education events for coffee shops, companies or private functions. Anything from tastings based on particular brewing methods or country of origin, through to exploring the history of the coffee industry, even just a good old Q&A chat about coffee in general.
