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.
Girls Who Grind Coffee is an all-female specialty coffee roastery owned and run by Fi O'Brien and Casey LaLonde.
Casey, originally from Upstate New York, and Fi, originally from Melbourne Australia, met and became friends in our now hometown of Frome, Somerset.
While our kids played, we often got chatting about our love of coffee and our various experiences within the industry, discovering that we both felt as though there was definitely room for change and improvement, in short - we wanted to see more equality!
As women, we had felt a little pushed out of an industry that we had loved so much and had so much to give to. Rather than simply complain about it, we thought we would make the change we wanted to see! We wanted to create an industry where women felt seen and celebrated for everything they bring to the table and have their voices heard. Hence why we made the conscious decision to focus solely on buying coffee from female producers, sharing their stories to the world, giving them the recognition they rightly deserve for the incredible work that they do.
