After years of roasting coffee for other people, Cat took the leap in Nov 2021 to start her own business. 
She started in a small shed with a 1kg and in Sep 2022,  opened a cafe roastery and purchased a 5kg Diedrich coffee roaster with the help of a council grant.

She's used her experience as a coffee taster, buyer and judge to select and roast great tasting coffees. The coffee is bought from small scale coffee importers who we trust.
When she's not roasting coffee, She's playin in a punk band; https://kissmekiller.bandcamp.com/
