Founder & CEO

Tom Vincent

DALLAS, TEXAS – Tom Vincent is the Founder and CEO of Texas Coffee School. Tom has been in specialty coffee since 2006 when he set sail on a two-year apprenticeship with a major specialty coffee roasting company. With the help of some of the most knowledgeable and influential people in the coffee industry, Tom learned the business of coffee from the inside out. Inevitably, Tom evolved from a barista to a teaching assistant, and eventually became a specialty coffee business owner himself when he opened Texas Coffee School in 2010.
