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... tropical fruit cup, mandarin, honey rip, mountain pose

About Vanessa... Vanessa is a third generation coffee farmer and although she also has an office job, she keeps working on the farm whenever she can.

From Vanessa; “My father recently passed away, so now my mom and I have a much bigger responsibility for the finca than we had before. We run a little grocery shop where my mom sells basic goods like water, toilet paper and rice, but she often closes the shop for a few hours to work on the finca. We also sometimes hire help, when it’s too much for the two of us, especially during the harvest. When I was a girl, I always spent my weekends on the farm during harvest season, mostly because there was nothing I liked more than picking those shiny red beans as fast as I could. My mom always laughed when she noticed my zeal and enthusiasm, but when she was little, she did the same”

Vanessa and her mom - Irma - have been through a very rough period after their father and husband passed away. But they were resilient and never gave up. Now, they see a better future again, thanks to their hard work and their high quality beans. In February 2023, we were lucky enough to meet both Vanessa and Irma. Their strength and resilience after what they had recently been through was unsurpassed. Their determination to provide a better future for their family was so apparent, and the warmth they exuded whilst doing so, was incredibly inspiring.
