Fi O’Brien and Casey Lalonde are the owners of Girls Who Grind, based in Wiltshire, South-West England. They are a womxn-led, anti-patriarchy specialty coffee roastery and they are part of the rebellion movement. All coffees they source come exclusively from change-making womxn producers whose work is celebrated and stories are shared. To give back to the producers in exchange for everything they give, above and beyond the beans themselves, Fi and Casey run the Cheek to Cheek initiative, where 10% of the sale price of all their retail coffees is put back into their suppliers' pockets to show intention about being one team. 

About the beans... A gorgeous washed, Rwandan that does everything you want in the cup. Lovely black tea notes with juicy raspberry and a moreish blood orange acidity.

About the Cocagi Femmes... Founded in 2017, COCAGI Femmes is a group of 298 women coffee growers located in the southwest of Rwanda. Gender equity is a main priority for the cooperative with women making up more than 30% of the elected seats for the larger COCAGI group. The objective of the group is to promote women economically, increase their visibility and engage them in decision-making.

Coffee fruit delivered by the women producers is tagged, dated, and processed separately – this coffee is branded as “Agasaro” the Kinyarawanda word for “beads” worn decoratively in the hair and as jewellery. This is an important step in creating visibility and awareness for the women farmers and their high-quality coffee.
