Cara’s collection of small moments began in 2009, when she answered a job ad on the door of a local coffeeshop in upstate New York. “I was freelancing and working a terrible retail job. The coffee shop in my town had a hand written help wanted sign on its front door, so I applied,” she shares. “They didn't have any more applications, so I had to write my experience and contact information on a note pad. I didn't drink coffee at the time, and I admitted it. I don't know why, but I was offered the job, and I promptly quit my crappy retail job and became addicted to coffee.”
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.
