Girls Who Grind Coffee

The roaster:

Girls Who Grind Coffee is an all-female specialty coffee roastery owned and run by Fi and Casey down in Frome, Somerset. These ambitious women focus solely on buying coffee from female producers, sharing their stories to the world, and rightly giving them the recognition they deserve for the incredible work that they do. Not only do they work with and pay these producers fairly, they also give 10% of all bags sold back to the producers as part of their "Cheek to Cheek" initiative. Our partnership has been long in the making and we are thrilled to finally be working with them. 

Coffee Name:

Gloria Henriquez

The coffee:

In 2022 we featured Girls Who Grind Coffee's Gloria Henriquez coffee. Gloria Henriquez is a 4th generation coffee producer and owner of FTO certified farm Los Nances.  She has a wealth of experience working on coffee farms having first started by watching her grandparents work on their farm as a child. “The new generation of coffee growers laugh at me when I tell them about the way we worked in the old days, but I see my experience and wealth of knowledge, even if from another era, as an advantage" Gloria says. In 2013, disaster struck when her farm was ruthlessly hit by rust. Gloria was close to despair. With no income and very little money for food, she went into debt. Little by little she pulled herself out of that deep hole and decided to diversify. Nowadays she holds over 100 free-range, chemical-free chickens, which she sells to eateries and her local community. A small but reliable source of income to supplement her coffee production.

The roasters:

We are a womxn-led, anti-patriarchy specialty coffee roastery and rebellion movement. We source all our coffees exclusively from change-making womxn producers. We celebrate their work and share their stories, ensuring representation and visibility and, what the hell, roast their crazy delicious coffee.

To give back to the producers in exchange for everything they give, above and beyond the beans themselves, we run the Cheek to Cheek initiative, putting 10% of the sale price of all our retail coffees back into their pockets. They are part of our team, part of the rebellion.

Our lives were saved by coffee and rebellion, but the rebellion doesn't end with coffee, that’s just the beginning. We are a community of rebels making positive changes in other areas that the patriarchy would love to see us shut out of. Nice try. We seek out fellow anarchists who do their own thing and dismantle misogyny along the way. Skaters, bikers, writers, riders, punks and producers, engineers and entrepreneurs, join the rebellion. Through collaborative events, sponsorship, ambassadorship and more; we are here to support you, to be seen and heard, and stay strong AF doing it.

We are two things. Pro-coffee and anti-patriarchy. And awesome. That’s three things. Deal with it.
