Trevor Corlett

Trevor Corlett began his career in coffee in 2001 after falling in love with the culture of coffee shops while in college. That love grew after experiencing the joys of specialty coffee and resulted in years of professional growth while managing and starting numerous cafe/roasteries throughout the midwest. After two failed cafe/roastery startups, the fruits of those failures resulted in his founding of Madcap Coffee Company in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 2008.

He currently serves as CEO of Madcap Coffee Company and is based out of their East Coast office in Washington, DC. Outside of Madcap, Trevor is a Past Chair of the Barista Guild of America, a Specialized Instructor for the SCAA, a subject matter expert in espresso for SCAA, is serving on the BGA Barista Pathway Committee, and is the lead organizer for a regional coffee community group in DC called DMV Coffee. He is also an Editorial Advisor for Barista Magazine, and has been a contributor to Fresh Cup Magazine. He was named one of the most influential people in the beverage industry in 2013 by Imbibe Magazine. Trevor has been competing in barista competitions since 2008, having finished in the top 6 in a regional competition consecutively for the last 7 years. In 2013 and 2014, he had consecutive 3rd place finishes in the U.S. and most recently finished 7th at the 2015 United States Barista Championship. Trevor is lucky to have the unconditional love and support of his wife and three daughters.
