Michael J. Coffey
The ironically-named Michael J. Coffey founded Tea Geek over a decade ago to provide educational events and content about tea for people with more than a casual interest in the world's best beverage. He was president of the planning committee of the very first Northwest Tea Festival, is working on his book, Evolution of a Tea Geek, and has a bi-weekly podcast about both tea and technology called TechTea. When he's not talking about tea, he teaches science at the Puget Sound Community School, business technology management classes at Seattle Central College, and is a small business consultant. And even then, he usually works tea into the conversation.
