Our Team

If you walk in to our Raleigh, NC headquarters and roasting facility, after being struck by the incredibly delicious smell of fresh roasted coffee, you will find of team of dedicated, hardworking and passionate professionals, all unified around a common goal of delivering an amazing product to our customers. From the customer service folks, to the sales team, to the roasters and guys “in the back” fulfilling orders, to the quality control team, packaging and logistics, to our financial folks and front office, each bag that leaves the building, stamped with the “Dilworth” logo, is actually being stamped with our collective stamp of approval.

And while each order contains the collective effort of a small army, here’s our leadership team:

JEFF VOJTA

JEFF VOJTA

OUR STORE MANAGER

Jeff is a bean counter, spending much of his career as an accountant, traveling the globe, pouring over spreadsheets, counting beans - you know accounting stuff. So, it is fitting that when making the jump to entrepreneurship, he followed his passion - beans. Although instead of just counting them, he got to roast them as well. You see, in his travels, Jeff developed a true appreciation for a great cup of coffee, and he realized that different folks around the world have their own very individual taste preference for the type of coffee, roast level and flavor. And his passion was born…providing great coffee, to be enjoyed however customers see fit.  

At Dilworth, Jeff get’s to combine his passion for coffee, his accounting prowess, and his own experience as an entrepreneur to lead the team and help customers and coffee shops be successful in both running a business and serving the best cup of coffee on the planet.

Mr. Koffee

The baron of beverages, the royalty of roasting, the sultan of sourcing, the king of coffee… whatever you call him, Brad is the guy who turns the finest coffee beans into Dilworth Coffee. For more than 20 years, Brad has been refining his craft, traveling the world, establishing relationships with farmers, sourcing the best beans available, and roasting them to levels that highlight each coffee’s best attributes. He’s a guy with whom you want to share a cup of coffee (or any beverage) and talk shop (or anything for that matter).

This guy has coffee in his veins. Prior to Dilworth, Taylor spent five years working in coffee shops. He knows all there is to know about recipes, equipment, menu design, and anything else to create that perfect beverage. He’s like our Barista Yoda, and the guy everyone turns to around 3:00 when it’s coffee break time.

PETER FLOYD

FRONT COUNTER SALES

For nineteen years, Peter has been on the front line selling coffee. And whether setting up coffee shops in hospitals and offices, encouraging retail coffee shops to join the Dilworth family, representing the brand at trade functions, or passing out samples to trick-or-treaters at Halloween, he is ALWAYS looking for opportunities to enhance the Dilworth Coffee brand and product availability. He probably has a trunk full of coffee right this minute, in-case he runs across a coffee shop in-need.

ERIC COOK

ERIC COOK

THE SUIT

The magic of Dilworth Coffee is found in each brewed cup. So, when the coffee leaves our building, the job is far from over. So, we spend as much time training our partners how to brew as we do on the sourcing and roasting beans themselves. That’s where Eric comes in. After 21 years in the coffee biz, he is uniquely equipped to work with distributors and larger institutions, providing recommendations on the coffees themselves, but also the equipment and training necessary to ensure that our customers’ customers, and their teams get the full Dilworth experience.

He’s our “guy” for all things store operations. From set up, to equipment layout and planning, menu development and cost-control, this dude is like a food service operations ninja. For more than 17 years, Michael has been revitalization and reimagining restaurant and coffee shop concepts to establish proven efficiency-enhancing processes built around the consumer.
