Ask the Roaster - Povilas from Vagabond Coffee Roasters
How was the Roastery founded, what was the inspiration?
The whole idea behind the Roastery was self sustainability as Vagabond was originally a coffee shop and since opening Vagabond we wanted to roast our own and be truly independent when it comes to the supply chain as well as being able to roast whatever we want and however we want.
What's your favourite part about working at the Roastery?
The fact it is a really closely knit team. Also everyone working at the Roastery owns a part of it, this is really amazing as people really come together, work with each other and treat the Roastery as their own.
What's your proudest accomplishment?
We are super proud to be working with a coffee farm directly. This is a really big deal for a Roastery that is as small as ours.
What three words best describe your Roastery?
Consistency - Sustainability - Focus.
What’s your favourite place to enjoy a coffee, and what coffee would that be?
Early morning on a terrace in the country side (wild country side:)) V60 Natural Panama Geisha.
Finally, what Dog & Hat combination would you choose?
