My name is Genesis (pronounced Henesis) Oropeza. I was born and educated in Venezuela, where I became Geological Engineer. I moved to the USA in 2015 and made this fantastic country my home. You may think that it's a far stretch to go from Engineering to coffee; however, my long hours of studying for certain gave me a Master's Degree in coffee appreciation. The disciplines that I have developed over the years as an Engineer has equipped me with the tools to excel and help direct The Chosen Bean in continuing its growth as a great specialty coffee roasting company. My "passion" for the world of coffee will be of the utmost importance in this task.
