Known as The Coffee Guy by many, Bryon Skvor has been passionately roasting coffee from his garage for the past eight years. This passion, along with countless hours of study and experimentation, led him to launch Humble Grounds Roasting Company.
Prior to Humble Grounds, Bryon led his remodeling company by growing it into a prominent player in the high end kitchen and bath segment of northeast Ohio. His company had a stake in a local custom cabinet shop for several years as they worked together in creating custom spaces in homes and for several University Hospital pediatrician offices.
Bryon spent the past year working with directors of various non-profits around Cleveland to create a housing initiative that serves under resourced families, homeless veterans and refugees arriving in the Cleveland area.
He has been married to Dawn for eleven years and they now have four children. They have been a part of the Oberlin community for the past eight years.
Humble Grounds took third place in the 2016 LaunchU Pitch Competition.
