Clinton Hodnett

Owner/Technician, Connected Coffee Solutions

Clinton is a self-employed technician and consultant in Buffalo, NY. They started their business, Connected Coffee Solutions, in June of 2018 to address a need for specialty-focused technicians in the region. When not working, they enjoy walks with their husband and dog, live music, collecting fountain pens, and a regular rotation of scotches and oolong teas. A barista for the last six years, Clinton still works weekend bar shifts at a higher-volume local shop both to enjoy serving coffee and to avoid the cost of a gym membership.

“This is an amazing opportunity for me to continue to develop the skills, knowledge, and network I need to support my community and my industry’s growth here in Western New York. I’m so grateful for the chance to continue to grow as a tech in this setting, and to lend my perspective and energy to the CTG community.”
