the crew

Pasteboard, Barista Magazine’s blog, is home to regular updates from Barista Magazine’s World Headquarters in Portland, Oregon and from other thoughts, musings and discussions from around the world posted by BMag’s editor and publisher and the members of Barista Magazine’s Editorial Advisory Board.


This is Sarah Allen, Barista Magazine’s editor, co-founder, genius, creative heart, and so much more. Simply stated, without Sarah there would not be a Barista Magazine.


This is Kenneth R. Olson, the publisher of Barista Magazine. (Note from Sarah: Ken is too humble to say it himself, but without him there would be no Barista Mag either. He has grown to love the coffee community and has become a vibrant part of it. He loves coffee almost as much as he loves the Portland Trailblazers and the Washington Huskies.)
