Meet The Roasters – the backstory of a @planetbeancafe coffee bean

On 20th September we will be looking at how to properly roast great coffee beans so that their magic can be tasted and enjoyed. But that taste starts with the grower and harvester. 

This 5 minute video (from Fairtrade company Planet Bean in Ontario, Canada) tells the story of their growers, pickers and dryers.

Thanks to them for sharing. For more on Meet The Roasters click here

Meet The Roasters – Jennifer Ryan, @ponaire

Jennifer is one of only a few female coffee roasters in Ireland (could be the only one, we must ask her :-). She is one of 3 roasters with us on Saturday 20th September

She is also one of the few roasters in Ireland with a formal certification for fair-trade beans and those beans, together with many of her non fair trade ones, have netted Ponaire 14 Great Taste awards over the years. They are available to buy from Dunerana, Donegal to as far SouthEast as Wexford town and as far SouthWest as the Dingle Penninsula. 

 

And finally a clip of Jennifer in action in 2012
