“In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, in the expert’s mind there are few” Shunryu Suzuki 

Kaizen is a project team dedicated to the continual improvement of coffee by imagining the possibilities without being consumed by limitations or what has gone before.

The approach of the Kaizen team is to start with a question. This question is then explored, most often through a series of experiments, until it is felt the answers can be presented as an education module.

The team is headed up by Sam Sgambellone, a partner at Mecca Espresso, who has demonstrated through the organisation of the NSW Barista Championship or hosting education sessions, he is dedicated to the education and development of his own staff, the broader coffee community as well as the general public.

We hope to be able to share some of our insights in the form of blog posts, videos and education. We will also in the near future be able to bring you some tools to improve coffee making.
