C O N T R I B U T O R S 1 Holly Bastin is a coffee mentor and educator based in Kansas City, Mo. When it comes to barista competitions, she's worked all the way up from competitor to judge, head judge, eventually becoming stage manager and, most notably, coach. Her favorite work involves nurturing growth, whether professional, personal, or spiritual (if they're into it). Her #notcoffee pastimes include writing, creating and enjoying art, and spending a lot of time with friends and family, especially Grandma. (Pull, p. 36) 2 Kate Haberer is a former barista, and a coffee lover and illus- trator living in Baltimore. When not drawing pictures or making coffee, she's usually on her bike or out in the woods. You can see more of her work at or on Instagram @katehaberer. (Illustration for The Cost of Opening a Coffee Shop, p. 94) 3 Born and raised in Gothenburg, Sweden, Jesper Lindgren is a freelance illustrator, graphic designer, and photographer. When not immersed in music or art, you can find Jesper either design- ing skateboards or braving the Swedish weather to ride them. (Photography for Steve Moloney feature, p. 70) 4 Erin Meister (you can call her just "Meister") has always led a kind of weird, caffeinated double life. As a coffee professional, she's been a barista, retail manager, wholesale-support represen- tative, and educator; as a journalist she's written and/or edited work for The Boston Globe, The Washington Post, Serious Eats,, and Rachael Ray Every Day magazine—as well as the gem you're holding in your hot little hands. These days she can be found writing content for Cafe Imports, riding her bike around the beautiful Twin Cities, and waxing philosophical about coffee ethics and history.You can email her at (Field Report: Copenhagen, p. 54) 5 Liv Omsèn and Tina Nejderskog make up the creative duo called MilkDrop Studio based in Sweden. Liv and Tina work in mys- terious ways and love a weird touch. Some of you might wonder who MilkDrop Studio is? Well: They are illustrators, filmmakers, photographers, content makers, and whatever you want them to be. Stay tuned—milk is about to be dropped.

Regardless of location, she has seen how specialty coffee can create space for authentic community and can serve as a catalyst to local and global transformation. When she isn't talking/ writing about coffee, she's likely playing outside, doing yoga, looking for a dog to snuggle, or frantically attempting to finish her graduate degree. (The Cost of Opening a Coffee Shop, p. 94) 7 Chris Ryan is Barista Magazine Online's copy editor and a free- lance writer and editor with a background in the specialty-coffee industry. He has worked as content director at Sustainable Harvest Coffee Importers and editor-in-chief of Fresh Cup Magazine. Outside of coffee, he enjoys baseball, running, and crossword puzzles.
