Meet Cory Slater, head roaster and green bean buyer at our December featured roaster @inglewoodcoffee. Along with business development director Julien Moussi, the pair were forever seeking ways to expand their horizons and abilities. “Julien and I love the coffee industry, and we love business. We both feel very fortunate to be involved in an industry that we are so passionate about”. Their collective experience owning and operating cafes including the likes of @pentaelsternwick, @mobcamberwell and @tinkernorthcote, meant they were only too well aware of Melbourne’s tough coffee market littered with elite competition. They knew this meant that coffee had to be more than just “good” for spoilt for choice Melburnians, so felt compelled to rise to the challenge and have a crack at the roasting side of the industry.
