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...

"Sweet and spice-y and all things nice-y: your girl Gloria is giving us life-y." This wonderfully warming coffee with the taste of sweet poached pear and chewy, fudgy caramel. From producer, Gloria Henriquez, the hardworking and entrepreneurial owner of Finca Los Nances. Gloria has overcome many difficulties and used her wealth of experience to diversify her farm and produce excellent micro-lots alongside her beloved free-range chickens!

Finca Los Nances is only a small operation of just under one hectare, but Gloria has produced high-valued micro-lots with the help of Cafesmo. That convinced her that this is the path she wants to take by building trusting relationships and working closely with one or two roasters. Girls Who Grind are incredibly grateful to be one of them. Gloria is also part of the brand new Women's Association established by Cafesmo, and we all can't wait to see what the women achieve together. 

About Gloria... 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.
