Director of Product
Kala's role at Onda Origins is to ensure that our product offerings meet Onda's high quality and sustainability standards; vetting not only the beans themselves, but also working with our partners to ensure that best practices are in use at every step along the supply chain. She is also here to serve as a resource for our wholesale and retail clients interested in coffee education and outreach. She first caught the coffee bug by way of an academic background in ecology and environmental management at Penn State and Duke University, and has since fallen deep down the rabbit hole. Prior to joining Onda she has worked in the coffee industry as a barista and cafe manager in the US, and in El Salvador as a production roaster, quality control and cupping lab manager for a small farm, and as a coffee shop owner.
