Marathon man Daryn Berlin is powered by coffee and doughnuts, both of which helped him blast through the finish line at the 2012 Tobacco Road Marathon. Currently a member of the sales and development team, Daryn was actually Counter Culture’s very first employee, and, since being hired in 1995, he has roasted, delivered, packaged, brewed, and competed with Counter Culture Coffee – the latter achievement has twice earned him spots in the semifinals of the US Barista Championships. He’s also the proud grower of Finca Nueva Berlin, his own living-room coffee farm.

He lives with his wife and their two children (and their dog, cat, and guinea pig) in Durham, NC, and he will always gladly race you for sweets.
