Favorite Brew - Iced Pour Over

Fun Fact - Darrell has been playing the guitar and singing for almost 20 years. His favorite genres are metal, hardcore, hip hop, R&B, and jazz.

“Progress and growth are some of the most important things to me in my life and work. Groundwork has given me an unparalleled opportunity to pursue and cultivate both in myself and others. While I am hugely passionate about coffee, coffee is not the point. I cherish the opportunity to connect, learn, and grow with all the beautiful people I work with everyday!”



Favorite Brew - Nitro Cold Brew

Fun Fact - Deanna's first car was a 67' Mustang, which her dad and her worked on together over the years. They transformed the classic from a "rust bucket" to a dream car. She hopes her son will appreciate classic cars as much as she does.

“I never drank coffee until I started working at Groundwork. Most importantly, I never grew an appreciation for coffee until I had a brewing and tasting class with Robby. Now I drink coffee every day, own a Hario V60, and will never look back.”
