We’re thrilled Juliet said yes to working with us, and we’re doubly thrilled to share her coffee. Juliet is the head roaster for Blue Bottle in Oakland, Calif., and that means she oversees and is responsible for a lot of coffee. “A big chunk of my job includes training apprentice roasters from the ground up (the most rewarding and challenging part of my job) and communicating with QC and roasters about coffee profiles,” she shares.
What is matchbook coffee project?
The Matchbook Coffee Project pushes the creative bounds of roasters to produce exciting and highly personal coffees. Our intention is to spotlight roasters by allowing them free reign over a coffee—not just through how the coffee roasted, but how the coffee is presented. Roasters will design logos, pick their own merchandise, and have complete say over how they want to communicate their coffee with their audience. Roasting is a highly technical and skilled profession, and through this project we hope to showcase both the unique abilities and tenacious determination each roaster has shown their craft.
