Hanna is among the world’s foremost “explainers”of coffee and coffee science. Whether she’s explaining the impact of climatechange to a room full of coffee roasters, or coffee genetics to a hedge fundtrader, or coffee brewing to her mom, the intersection of coffee and science isher passion.

As the communications director for World Coffee Research, Hanna writes regularly and speaks globally about the future ofcoffee and coffee agriculture. (See talks here and here and here).

She is the author of Left Coast Roast, a guidebook to artisan and influential coffee roasters on the west coast. Her writing about coffee and food has appeared in publications including the Art of Eating, Portland Monthly, and coffee trade magazines too numerous to mention.

Her varied publishing career has included stints producing travel guides and books about wicca and professional wrestling, working with international scholars on global economics white papers, and line editing muckraking weekly journalism.

She lives in Portland, Ore. If her grandparents hadn't moved briefly to Eureka, California in the 1960s she would be an eighth generation Oregonian.
