Coffee Spotlight: Girls Who Grind Coffee

 

 
Girls Who Grind Coffee are not only an all-female specialty coffee roastery, they also source all their coffees from women coffee producers too. This month’s Roaster Roster selection is named for the women who grow it at Mió in Brazil and is described by GWG co-founder, Fi, as “a real experience, A big ole-heavy mouthfeel married with sugary-sweetness, black cherry, and enough citrus acidity to keep things balanced.”

Tasting notes: juicy black forest cherry gummy sweets / pomelo / new wave
Origin: Monte Santo De Minas, Brazil
Varietal: Mundo Novo, Yellow Catuai
Process: Natural
Size: 250g

Every coffee has a history

Mió, the company that produced this coffee in Monte Santo De Minas, Brazil, is run by three women: a mother-daughter duo, Renata and Ana, and Chris. They all share a passion for sustainability and championing women within the coffee industry.

Mió prides itself on a 100% traceability guarantee for the entire crop every year. Each stage of the journey, from where the cherries were harvested to which trucks moved them, is tracked using satellite imagery. Being a technology-driven farm improves the farmworkers’ quality of life, ensures an abundant harvest, and guarantees the highest processing standards for the crop.

Mió aims to oversee every part of the supply chain. They export their own coffee and sell directly to roasteries themselves. Buying coffee from Mió is as trustworthy and straightforward as buying vegetables at your farmers’ market.
 

About Minor Figures

From the very beginning, we approached the business in a different way - we focused on products that did not compromise flavour, quality, or innovation.  We would aim our products at both consumers and professionals - blurring the lines dividing the two. As a result, Minor Figures products are equally at home in the aisles of a major retailer, and behind the bar at the best coffee shops around the world.

About the Company
Founded by Hannah McCollum, ChicP was set up to bring healthy, colourful dips to the food market. A hummus lover, tired of bland and unhealthy options, Hannah decided to combine her creative cooking and eagerness to help prevent food waste, into healthy, punchy vegetable hummus from surplus vegetables.

Over the last five years, Hannah has cooked for families in the UK and all over Europe, predominantly as a private chef. She would often convert the leftover Ottolenghi type salads into dips for the next meal. Nearly every day the question would be “what’s the dip of the day Hannah”?!

The inspiration behind ChicP was the overriding determination and passion to change the way we approach cooking and food waste.
