George is an Electrical Engineer and founder of Gorby LLC. Prior to his early retirement from IBM, he was involved with research and leading edge product development. As an inventor, he received nearly two dozen patents and patent disclosures. An entrepreneur at heart, George was involved with several startups. Hooked on the single serve concept, he felt there had to be a better way… and set out to develop a system geared to the specialty coffee roaster for packaging 100% compostable pods at an affordable price. The result is the Gorby 1000, a table top system designed and built in the US.
