Ms.Perry began with Klatch Coffee working in the retail stores, and later began using her
skills to compete in Barista Competitions. The skills she has learned at Klatch equipped her

and taking 2nd place in the World Barista Championships to name a few.
These titles helped to
solidify Ms. Perry’s reputation as a professional trainer, and she has trained individuals and
organizations in over a dozen countries. She is also the past Chair of the Barista Guild of America
where she helped to design and launch their Certification Program.
Holly began sweeping beans behind the counter when she was 5 years old and has worked in the coffee industry every since. Though unsure at one point whether or not she wanted to work in the family business, she could not imagine doing anything else.
Holly is a graduate of Cal Poly Pomona with a BA in Hotel and Restaurant Management and is also certified sommelier. You can find Holly in and around the Klatch retail stores, visiting other cafes, or competing in latte art throw downs.
Since his early teenage years Todd was always fascinated with the coffeehouse
experience. At first, he was drawn in by the environment and the atmosphere, but later learned
that it was the coffee that would inspire his career path.
Over the years, Todd has continued to find ways to expand his knowledge of the industry by
attending and volunteering at SCAA (Speciality Coffee Association of America) and BGA (Barista
Guild of America) events.
His recent accolade is winning the US Brewers Cup competition in the 2014 SCAA held in
Seattle, WA. He eventually advanced to Italy to compete for the World Brewers Cup and placed
8th in the world, as well as 1st in the compulsory round. With his commitment and passion for
specialty coffee, Todd will always find a way to elevate his wisdom and skills to the next level.
