Do you know where your coffee comes from?

  • Ruby Little , Level 2 Ruby Little. View Map

    Price: Free

Join the Ruby Little team in their café, and Matt Graylee (Director of Raw Material and coffee connoisseur!) from 11am on Thursday 26th September. Matt will share his passion for helping to create positive coffee communities and will also provide an insight into a coffee farming project in Timor-Leste. Enjoy a coffee (and why not a little treat) while learning a little more… at Ruby Little!

Ruby Little will present a cheque to Matt with the funds raised from their “Support the Farmers” September Promotion. These funds will go towards providing sustainable and life changing opportunities for local coffee producers in Timor-Leste and their communities.

Matt’s coffee career has been varied, so too the positions and geographic regions in which he has worked and studied; these experiences have provided Matt with an in-depth understanding of the coffee value chain, the challenges facing farmers, opportunities for improved sustainability and other key areas impacting the coffee industry.

Currently the Director of Raw Material (a green coffee production company that aims to improve price stability at the farm level and to distribute income more equitably along the supply chain), Matt’s projects (such as ‘El Fénix’, a coffee farming initiative in Colombia) are all an expression of his holistic value-set, a foundation of which is to help facilitate fairness, sustainability and greater opportunities for farmers and communities at origin.
