Jeremy Brooks might not be the first person you talk to at a party, but he wouldn’t be the last, either. “I’m not really the most out there person in a group of people. I’ll tell you anything you ask me, though.” And that’s true—talking to Jeremy, who is our featured roaster for the month of July—you feel as if he’ll tell you anything if you ask.
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.
