Tom is Coffee Works’ Morning Retail Manager and Coffee Roaster. He opens the store at 6:00 am every weekday and anchors the morning party. After the rush subsides Tom fades back to the roaster and toasts up the finest fresh coffees in town.
In his off-duty life Tom is the ass-kicking front man for the Knock Offs, a seminal figure in the Sacramento punk rock scene.
