Drew Billups, Lab Manager

Graduating with a personally fulfilling but professionally irrelevant bachelor's degree in Music Composition in the spring of 2000, Drew began to earn his keep roasting coffee on a 10 K Toper for Alliance World Coffees in Muncie, IN. He took to it quickly and, all these years later, finds roasting as interesting and fulfilling as ever.

In the Summer of 2004 Drew's passion for beautiful coffee led him and his wife Sara to move to Seattle. He joined the roasting team at Zoka Coffee, eventually becoming Head Roaster and Green Buyer. The high points of his working life centered around sample roasting and cupping new coffees to fill Zoka's line-up. Joining the ranks of Atlas, Drew quite happily sample roasts and cups to his heart's content in the Atlas lab.

When not drinking coffee Drew can be found enjoying craft beer, single-malt whiskey, and plenty of water. His other interests include: bread making, eating out, home brewing, camping, and reading the Sunday New York Times.
