Along with his business partner, Trevor Corlett shares a passion for coffee; its story, flavor, and ability to bring people together. Trevor founded Madcap Coffee Company and today serves as its co-CEO. His passion for coffee has led to years of involvement in the coffee community – 13 years instructing for the Specialty Coffee Association and serving on their Board of Directors, past chair of the Barista Guild of America, and currently as chair for the Local First Board of Directors in Grand Rapids.

In addition to his entrepreneurial success, Trevor has won numerous awards through participation in various barista competitions since 2008 culminating in a first place finish in the 2016 Eastern Conference Barista Championship and a 5th place finish in the 2016 United States Barista Championship.
