Sam Pinkerton
Education Manager and Lead Instructor of Clive Coffee and Coffee School.

Over the past seven years, I've seen just about every side of the coffee industry, from behind the counter serving you your lattes, to traveling around the States, training cafe owners, and baristas. In 2018, I joined Clive Coffee with one goal: to help more people drink better coffee without the trouble of having to order it from the old, tired Sam that once served it to you. What a concept, cafe-quality coffee without having to leave your house?! That's what Clive is all about! We've been turning your everyday coffee lovers into home baristas since 2008, but in 2020, we changed the coffee industry... again.

I've spent this year alongside an incredible team of coffee educators to create a training program designed specifically for you, the home barista. My hope for you- to make better coffee than your favorite cafe or barista. Can you do it? Absolutely. That's why we've made Coffee School. Cheers to better coffee and happier mornings.
