Sam Grigg

Originally from Melbourne, the self-proclaimed home of the flat white, Sam's coffee career began in the high mountains of central Vietnam. Sam has already lived and worked in some of the most beautiful countries in the coffee-producing world, such as India and Colombia, where he coordinated the exports of a large coffee trader. For List + Beisler, he works out of New York and is using his strategic acumen and bags of enthusiasm to press ahead with the expansion of the North American market. Sam is aware of the often less than ideal conditions of the farmers in the coffee producing countries, yet he is and remains an idealist. Therefore, he is assuming responsibility as a board member of a leading NGO and providing small and medium-sized coffee farms in origin countries with sustainable funding. But his tendencies for world improvement don't stop there: he never tires in his attempts to educate us in the difference between rugby and Aussie Rules football. Now that's true passion!

Jim Patton

Jim started out in farm and ranch work, where he happened to come across an advertisement for an assistant coffee buyer for the Coca Cola Company. Out of curiosity, Jim sent his resume which resulted in him leaving graduate studies in Animal Nutrition at Texas A&M to take a position with Coca Cola's Maryland Club Coffee Company.

Jim was with Maryland for over 12 years and rose through the ranks to become manager for green coffee buying, importing and blending; before the company was sold-off. From there Jim moved to an Indian multinational trading company, where he oversaw the Houston office and the sourcing of tea for their US packing plants, as well managed the importation and sales of India and other origin coffees to the North American market.

Since 2006 Jim has worked for a well-known specialty coffee importer, which at the time of his commencement was merely a start-up. Jim handled the full spectrum of merchant responsibilities in a 2-person operation and helped grow the company into one of the premier specialty coffee importers in the USA. Jim has joined List + Beisler with the goal of accomplishing the same.

Joe Marrocco

Joe began his coffee career in his mid-twenties as a barista. He jumped in with both feet and fell in love. This love drove him to voraciously learn as much about coffee as he could. He grew his skills through managing the shop, participating in some of the earliest latte art competitions, and submerging himself in the greater US coffee community. Within a few years, Joe started to dig into roasting, learning a whole new layer of coffee skills. Fueled by a deep desire to make this new knowledge broadly accessible, he started to teach and share his roasting experience. Further to this he was competing in the US Barista Championships and supporting various coffee competitions and competitors.

His coffee passion and eternal coffee-curiosity lead him to further explore the roasting side of the business as well as also green/importing side with a steady focus on building more accessible roasting and green buying education, and lowering the barrier of entry to people who wish to get into this profession. Joe has helped hundreds of new companies all over the world get their start and learn how to run a successful coffee business. He joined our team at List + Beisler, bringing with him this wide breadth of knowledge and passion to share it with our clients. He is working hard in the US market to combine our rich history with new buying opportunities and customized consultation to roasters across the nation.

Dave Bacon

Starting his coffee career as a Barista in San Diego over 25 years ago, Dave Bacon immediately fell hard for coffee. After all those years he's still in love. This love inspired him to hone his roasting skills for nearly 15 years.

Dave's coffee passion was bound to lead him to the importing side of this business. He has spent a decade helping his clients find the perfect green coffees, bringing producers and roasters together, and forging long-lasting relationships. His years of experience on the roaster side allows Dave to view things from a roaster's perspective, and in turn, source and deliver some of the highest value coffees on the planet.

Dave joined List + Beisler with the aim of bringing highest level of customer service to customers, tireless work ethic, and a commitment to finding the coffee that fits customers' needs exactly.
