Meet the team: Jamie

Describe your job in 3 words


How did you get into the coffee industry? First job, first impression of coffee etc!

I was part of an entirely different industry before coffee. I used to be an account manager for a few different nursery brands believe it or not! If you needed prams and car seats, I was your guy! 

I was one of those people who drank instant coffee, or got a PSL every autumn because I’m cool like that.. but it wasn’t until around 10 years ago that we went for brunch at a local spot and I ordered a flat white (never heard of it before), and this little perfectly stretched and steamed milky drink, with a few tulip stacks, was put down in front of me and it was delicious. I couldn’t believe coffee could taste that good.

So that started the passion for speciality coffee. I moved into account management and training for a commercial roaster in the midlands for a few years, completed a few SCA courses, and then made my way over to PLOT to steer their wholesale program! It’s been 3 years and it’s the best job I’ve had. And most caffeinated.

What’s been your favourite coffee from PLOT so far?

Too many speciality coffees to choose from but if I had to, then to this day, I still think about the Gerardo Arias - Natural Catuai from Costa Rica, that we released mid 2022. It was super clean for a natural and tasted like peach tea, watermelon and stewed strawberries! So sweet and tasty.

What’s been your favourite coffee of all time (Not from PLOT, let’s shout out some of our favourites)

One of the coffees I couldn’t have got through lockdown without was from Dark Arts Coffee. They released an incredibly tasty natural from Papa New Guinea. They called it ‘Zombie Ritual’ and it tasted like them little foam shrimp pick n mix sweets. Essentially really candy like and fairly lactic. I bought several boxes!

Another favourite coffee of mine has to be Takesi Gesha by Coffee Collective in Copenhagen. With Gesha, I can usually take it or leave it but regardless of variety, this has to be one of the best coffees I’ve ever had.

What’s your go-to breakfast when making team breakfasts?

The team is mainly veggie, so anything with eggs really! I’m a big fan of shakshuka and sourdough.

When you’re not brewing coffee, what do you like to do in your free time?

Not sure what free time is anymore aha! But I’m a family man so I love hanging out with my fiancé and daughter.
