Kemal Risyad is Co-Founder and Head Roaster at Archers Coffee, as well as a licensed Q Grader. He has been working in the coffee industry for 10 years. From starting as a barista, he has built his way to his current position by seizing every opportunity to expand his coffee knowledge and skillset — learning daily on-the-job as a roaster, through immersion at farm-level, studying post-harvest processing, sitting at certification exams, and participating as both competitor and coach in the different Coffee Championship disciplines.

Delivering this program is also part of Kemal’s ongoing professional development journey. Learners stand to benefit from real-world insights gained from his extensive experience, which has shaped his approach to teaching and roasting.
