Hi, I’m Mark Morphew

Welcome To  Bean Ground 

Bean Ground is a popular coffee blog that’s managed, maintained, and self-financed by Mark Morphew.

Bean Ground publishes informational coffee resources, how-to guides, and step-by-step coffee brewing guides.

The website is primarily tailored towards beginners – with a vast catalog of articles, we aim to give you the tools necessary to help you learn the skills needed to brew excellent tasting “coffee shop quality” coffee – in the comfort of your own home.

Mark does his best to simplify the information provided at Bean Ground so you can easily follow along at home without needing to pull out a barista pocket reference book to understand the terminology and language used.

Hopefully, the reviews and recommendations will help you to make better-informed decisions when buying the best coffee gear and finding excellent quality coffee.

Mark’s Story

I had a passion for the hospitality industry from an early age!

Mark’s journey can be traced back over 25 years when he graduated from hospitality and catering college in Northern England.

His career began when he landed his first full-time job as a Commis Chef in a busy hotel.

After realizing that he didn’t want to spend the rest of his life stuck in the sweaty kitchen as a Chef, Mark took the initiative and steps needed to move into the “front of house” rather than the ”back of house” kitchen environment.

After switching up his carrier, Mark found himself dumping his chef whites in favor of a barista apron. Soon after, he began working and managing popular cafes and restaurants around the United Kingdom.

Later he moved to the Middle East where he spent over a decade running various hospitality operations – and so the journey began.

Fast forward. Today, Mark is enjoying life somewhere in South East Asia. He’s a stay-at-home Dad who loves nothing more than to write about all things to do with coffee.

Today his primary focus is on Bean Ground – Mark hopes that he can use this platform as a way to pass on to others a little of what he has learned over the years in the coffee industry.

If you’re a beginner or even a seasoned coffee pro, maybe you will learn a thing or two on brewing great-tasting coffee at home – minus the “fluff” and confusion, of course.
