Self-proclaimed coffee connoisseur and aspiring foodie, Jordan is best known for his larger than life Afro.

He brings his raw UK edge to everything he writes and is always the source of a good laugh — if you ever have the chance to run into him, which will most likely be in a small coffee shop somewhere.
