Sometimes, legends are legends for a reason.
A few years ago, you wouldn’t have found Sara Gibson behind a roaster. You would have found her, instead, on the roller rink, leading The Oakland Outlaws, a roller derby team, to victory. Now, she’s roasting for Greater Goods Coffee in Austin, Texas, and is our featured roaster for the month of November.
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.
