Director of Roasting


Brice Sturmer [@bricestu] is a roaster's roaster. No frills here, but enough flare to match his experience and expertise. Formerly with Luna Coffee, in De Pere Wisconsin, Brice made his way down to Nashville to work with Honest in early 2016. Brice's style has been quoted as "practical" by Sprudge for his unique ability to be a fashion icon while remaining comfortable in his durable work outfit. A typical day at Honest consists of roasting coffee, handling all coffee inventory and shipping logistics, green buying to source our next fine coffees to come, and meeting with wholesale clients.  Currently his favorite coffee on our menu is the Flores!  

Director of Retail

Brad Hendryx  [@bradhendryx] joined the team in April of '15. Originally a midwesterner - Brad came to Tennessee a number of years ago now and has worked in coffee for 6 years. Brad truly is a thinker and a teacher. On regular occasions you will catch him demonstrating how to calculate extraction yield to an interested customer with his trusty erasable marker.  When Brad is not bouncing between Honest locations keeping staff sharp you can probably find him laying down a groovy bass line.  You can spot Brad the next time you drop in Honest by looking for his iconic red curly hair, once you find him, give him a high five!  Currently, Brad's favorite coffee on the menu is the Kenya Kiangoi.
