Sophie and Max, a brother and sister duo who represent the new generation of Cognac lovers. Sophie and Max’s roots in the Cognac region go back three generations, to when their grandfather grew crops and vines on their estate, Logis de Beaulieu.

As farmers themselves, they have a unique understanding of what it means to grow vines, the successes and challenges of growing vines and the ephemeral beauty of a successful harvest.
Determined to keep the life and soul of their family estate alive and to promote the essence of the region they love so much, they launched Cognac Expert 10 years ago. Today, it is the international reference platform for the Cognac community, whose reputation is well established.
Max and Sophie have continued to nurture this community by sharing their culture, heritage, know-how, passion and knowledge with enthusiasts around the world.

These are values that we share and that our community of coffee lovers and professionals appreciate. We are committed to bringing people together around quality products, hospitality and convivial experiences beyond the coffee culture we cherish so much. That’s why La Marzocco is pleased to announce its collaboration with the Cognac Expert teams.

We look forward to sharing Sophie and Max’s expertise with you for a sensory journey between Cognac and coffee. To find out more about Cognac Expert, visit @cognacexpert
