The faces behind Bluestone Lane coffee
Passionate and forward-thinking, the people that make up our Coffee Team at Bluestone Lane are like no other. We had our creative team spend some time illustrating five members of the innovative force that keep that delicious coffee coming we all love so much. We’re proud to introduce you to them below.
As the Coffee Education Director for Bluestone Lane, we look to Georgia to lead us in the charge when it comes to producing consistently premium and great tasting coffee from our coffee lab to every single location, as well as remaining innovative in the wider coffee scene. We took a moment to sit down with Georgia and ask her what she loves about her job.
“I love coffee because it’s delicious and has the power to unite communities and groups of people in an incredibly powerful way. All along the chain from growers, to traders, to baristas and consumers, coffee is such a wonderful crop.”
Jack Harkin knows good coffee, which is why he stands as our Regional Coffee Educator for the East Coast. Originally from the UK, Jack moved to the Big Apple and began as a barista. After blowing everyone away with his talents, he worked his way up to join the BL Coffee Team
“Learning, connecting, being challenged are all awesome side effects of making coffee. Also it tastes great”
Besides being a great guy to have a chat with, Ronan is also our Head Roaster & Green Buyer which he operates out of our world class roasting facility in Brooklyn. There are few things Ronan doesn’t know about the great wide world of coffee.
“I love what I do because coffee is 50 percent science, 50 percent passion and I love working on it from crop to cup. Whether it’s the local run farms and farmer run cooperatives we buy from in Columbia and Brazil or the cafés, coffee shops and roasters of the USA, there is always something new to learn and new people to meet.”
With us from near the very beginning, Freyja not only knows all the ins and outs of Bluestone Lane, but she’s also much-loved by our teammates and locals alike. As the Coffee Education Manager, Freyja sets all our new and seasoned baristas up for success.
“I’m endlessly appreciative of the people I get to connect with everyday and seeing them learn and develop is why I love working in coffee.”
Charis is one of our incredible Head Baristas at Bluestone Lane and she shares her talents with those on the West Coast. She makes sure all our LA locals keep a smile on their dial and a cup of great brew in their hands at all times.
“Coffee has its way of connecting people together. Working at the café gave me the opportunity to create a third world environment for all the locals I get to interact with and that alone is why I love working with coffee.”
