Humans of coffee: Kyle Wade Sheppard

Who is Kyle Wade Sheppard? In a nutshell, I’m a husband, Jesus follower, professional photographer and coffee enthusiast, so basically your average Instagram hipster haha. I’m a big picture oriented dreamer with an excessive amount of energy and I’m frequently stoked about a great many things. Professionally, I travel and shoot weddings with my wife (Kyle Loves Tori Photography) which is a crazy awesome gig, I couldn’t be happier with it! When I’m not traveling, I manage social media and content creation for local businesses in St. George, UT, where we live currently. Though I live in Utah, I’m a native born Coloradan at heart, and I’m very proud of my home state. What is your favorite childhood memory? My dad bought a digital SLR sometime when I was in late elementary school/middle school. He would take pictures through out the week at the summer camp my family ran. Sometime in high school, I remember my mom telling me that he, referencing my dad, had a special eye for it. I don’t know why that …

Humans of coffee: Bilbo Steyn

Who is Bilbo Steyn? This is a very tricky question, it feels a bit like an online dating bio! I’m just your average 31 year old chick who can make a party out of almost any occasion and always have the essential ingredients on hand for a slap up meal. My life is busy with work but I ironically work very hard to balance it out and retain some sense of spontanatiety. I have a really good career and life in Cape Town, I am blessed with a ridiculously awesome family and my friends are loving, generous and heaps of fun, so I try to spend as much time with them as possible, yet I’m very independent and can happily do my own thing. What is your best childhood memory? The truth is I had a very happy upbringing, we toured Southern Africa extensively during school holidays (my parents were both teachers) and always spent Christmas holidays surrounded by grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins. There are vivid memories that stand out, my mom would always …

Humans of coffee: Bruce Collins

Who is Bruce Collins? I see myself as an instigator. In “The Art of Instigating”, Tom Morkes says that “the Instigator seeks to alter the status quo, to change direction, and to create without permission. The Instigator believes in potentialities. The Instigator is bold, confrontational, and sometimes foolhardy. The Instigator does things that are inadvisable.” Furthermore, I am a passionate innovator and an educator by profession. I love design, art, film and books. I’m an erstwhile skateboarder who dabbles in longboarding now and again. I’m a compulsive beard grower and wannabe barista. And, I love great coffee. Mostly, though, I’d define myself as a father, partner and child. My three beautiful daughters are a gift and I love that I get to do life with them. Their presence in my life is an overwhelming blessing. Being a husband to Yolanda is my favourite thing. She is my corresponding puzzle piece. We fit. Lastly, my faith is a guiding factor in my life. I am grateful to God for loving me. What is your best childhood …
