Origin’s founder and roastmaster is Heather Brisson-Lutz. Her journey with coffee began as a part-time barista job at a specialty roaster in the midwest over 15 years ago. It wasn’t long before her part-time job became a full-time career pursuit. Heather soon became inspired by cafes and roasters in the Pacific Northwest, and within a few years she was on a successful path honing her craft as a barista in Portland, Oregon.
Over the years Heather became more intrigued by the roasting room, and especially interested in the intricate journey of a coffee bean. She envisioned each one, from the farmers hands, to the skilled roastmaster, to the customers first taste. She’s accelerated in her career as a roastmaster and over the years has been acknowledged by many as a leader in the field.
Today Heather is a well-seasoned coffee professional continuing to innovate and lead in the field. This is where Origin Coffee Roasters come into the picture. Heather knows that there is no better place on Earth for her than Maui, and no better place for coffee either.
A lifelong dream to be in Hawai’i has brought Heather and her family to the island and she commits to establishing the strongest connection possible to this spectacular growing region and its vibrant community of coffee lovers.
