John Gordon's Framework Coffee Wants To Shake Up New Zealand

Before we left London, it was always a long-term goal for us to get into green coffee. It’s a bit more enjoyable than sitting behind a roaster 12 hours a day, roasting huge production batches. We’d spoken with a few people over time, and within all our travels about what we wanted to do in New Zealand, and once we actually got to New Zealand, the biggest thing that we noticed was that there was a shortage of quality green coffee in the country, and a lot of roasters struggling to get hold of really good green coffee because of where we’re situated. So it’s quite difficult and expensive to get coffee shipped here, and for the smaller roasters it’s not viable to have one bag shipped every few months from the other side of the world. So we wanted to be able to bridge that gap between all the roasters here in the country and the green suppliers around the world.
