Allen came to Counter Culture after working for some of the best coffee roasters in the country, including Gimme, Stumptown, and Ritual.

Allen lives in Los Angeles and is expecting his first child with his wife, Taylor—their puppy Darcy doesn't know what she's in for. When he's not working he loves going to Dodger games, hiking in Griffith Park, and eating cheeseburgers. He reads a lot (he was an English major), and his daughter's room is filled with his favorite paperbacks. Mostly he spends his time watching Jeopardy with his wife, watching movies with his wife, or finding new awesome cheeseburgers, also with his wife.
