Employee Spotlights

Robby Ford, Foodservice Sales at Groundwork Coffee

Foodservice Sales Manager


Favorite Brew - AMUCC and Ethiopia

Fun Fact - Robby has been skateboarding since he was 7 years old. He’s retired from the tricks but it still remains as his main creative outlet.

“I’ve been working in coffee since I was 19 years old. Over the years, I’ve made amazing relationships through coffee - I met my wife working as a barista. Personally for me, I think skateboarding and coffee are very similar. Learning a new trick vs dialing in a new coffee requires a lot of patience and trial and error but when you nail it, it’s a great feeling that can’t be explained.”

Su Sung, Content and Community Specialist at Groundwork Coffee

Content + Community Specialist


Favorite Brew - Beehive Matcha Latte

Fun Fact - Su loves nothing more than her dogs, spicy food, and staying up late- in that order. When not at work, she loves trying new restaurants, playing tennis, and drawing.

“I've always loved coffee, tea, and the community aspect of cafes. Not until I started working for Groundwork is when I truly appreciated the difference organic product makes for the final cup I drink in the morning. I'm always visiting our cafes, if you see me, please don't hesitate to say hello! Love my Groundwork fam!”
