“Aaron Kiel was one of the first people I met when I started with Tea & Coffee Trade Journal in 2012. He is an esteemed public relations and communications professional and is highly knowledgeable of both the tea and coffee industries. Aaron is also a strong writer and interviewer, which led me to ask him to become a contributing editor for Tea & Coffee Trade Journal. Over the last several years, Aaron has conducted numerous interviews and written insightful articles for us. As a PR expert, Aaron has offered excellent and timely article suggestions that benefit his clients, and of course, T&CTJ’s readers. Whether contributing editorial or submitting information on behalf of his clients, Aaron always meets his deadlines. He is one of the best, and I truly enjoy working with him. It’s professionals like Aaron who make an editor’s job easier.”
