Casey, Co-Founder / Head of Coffee + Licensed Q Grader
Casey has wanted to work in coffee since she was a teenager growing up in Upstate New York. She has happy childhood memories of her house filling up with the smell of coffee brewing in the mornings. In her 20’s when she landed her first job at a roastery/coffee lab in Vermont she knew she’d never look back.
Casey started off in a cupping lab where she learned how to cup and roast. She also assisted on Q-Grader courses. She enjoyed the experience of working in a lab but learned two things. 1.She wanted to work for herself. 2. She wanted to be involved in green buying and producer relationships.
As Head of Coffee and Head Roaster at GWGC, Casey is responsible for sourcing beans from all of the incredible women we work with as well as roasting them and making them taste great. Casey is always on the search for incredible female producers to work with, building those important relationships and selecting incredible coffees not only for their taste but for the stories behind them.
