GIRLS WHO GRIND IS AN ALL FEMALE COFFEE ROASTERY RUN BY US, FI O'BRIEN and CASEY LALONDE.
CASEY, originally from upstate new york began her coffee career as a kickass roaster WORKing IN A COFFEE LAB AND ROASTERy IN vermont.
FI, originally from melbourne, HAS ALWAYS SWAYED BETWEEN working in DESIGN AND CAFE OWNERSHIP/MANAGEMENT.
both now living in frome, somerset with our fams, our destined paths met and our roastery ownership dreams have come true on a farm, in the wild wiltshire town of upton scudamore (don't worry, we didn't know where that was either!)
it's no secret that the coffee industry is a very male dominated world so we're here to big up the ladies in the coffee industry, from the female farmers through to the coffee drinkers, sourcing all of our coffees from female producers and farmers and those who work to support them. not only is the taste of the coffee important to us, but also the incredible stories behind them.
