Hi there, my name is Ryoko.


I'm the caffeinated Japanese lady who runs I Love Coffee. This site is full of infographics, facts, quizzes, and other fun visual stuff about coffee. When I get bored of writing about coffee, I write about sushi sometimes.

I never liked coffee up until I moved to Seattle in 2009. In fact, I only had maybe literally a couple of coffee in my life till then. I started thinking I should take more advantage of being in Seattle — the coffee capital and I trained myself to drink coffee. Now I think my body is made of coffee!

I was in the education field for a decade, and I started this site as a hobby. Now I dumped my education career and I'm full time on this! (I talked about how I started the site on this interview.) I get to do this for a living because of you guys and I really hope you like coffee more than before after reading this site:)
