is a small team of coffee-loving writers and reviewers. Our goal is to provide you with the best coffee-related content around, from exhaustive “how to” brewing guides to product reviews and more general coffee articles.

How We Make Money is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to

What does that mean?

You’ll notice that most of the product recommendations we make are found on Amazon. If you click on a product link that sends you to Amazon, and you buy a product, we receive a small commission directly from Amazon.

This works great for sites like ours, because it demonstrates how we’re totally unbiased in our product recommendations – the commission we receive is paid out by Amazon, and not by any particular manufacturer.

Who We Are

Roger Stanley
Owner and Founder

My name is Roger Stanley, and I’m the head of our small team. As cliche as it may be, I got my start in coffee after graduating from college with an English degree and picking up a part-time job as a barista while I figured out what I wanted to do with my life. Turns out I love coffee enough to make it a full-time thing!



Sarah McDaniels
Reviewer and writer

Sarah is a reviewer and writer for The Full Moon Cafe. She’s always loved coffee, but never thought she could make a job out of it. She has a B.S. in Chemistry from Loyola University and understands the science behind a good cuppa better than anyone else on the team!



Julia Fischl
Reviewer and occasional graphic designer

Julia is a reviewer here at The Full Moon Cafe and also does any graphic work needed for our reviews, guides, and articles. She’s our resident “bean expert” and has far too many blends of coffee at any given point in time.



Kenny Chase
Field tester and brewing expert

Kenny was actually a reader of ours that reached out with a suggestion for improving our testing methodology. He’s since overhauled the entire process and knows his way around any and every piece of coffee machinery out there!



Harrison Kinek

The newest member of our team, Harrison is a coffee enthusiast and editor extraordinaire. He makes sure all of our i’s are dotted and t’s crossed when we get carried away by an exceptionally good roast. Die hard user of the oxford comma.
