Passionate about both coffee and sustainability, Dan leads on all impact initiatives - from carbon reduction projects to developing partnerships with coffee producers, sometimes using his somewhat questionable Spanish (and by questionable, we mean awkwardly speaking a few words, very loudly). Dan has a Masters degree in Sustainable Development and spent several years working in coffee and cocoa traceability before launching Chimney Fire Coffee in 2017. Current office ping-pong champion (it’s a fix). NSFW until he’s had at least two flat whites in the morning.
When Row goes on holiday, everything falls apart (we joke, well sort of). She has bucketloads of industry experience, having worked in both roasting and importing before joining Chimney Fire in December 2020. Known for her abundant cheerfulness and unrivalled knowledge of Excel formulae, she is the linchpin of our operation and ensures that every single bean arrives safely where it needs to be. Once somersaulted out of a taxi straight into the side of another car after a very taxing B Corp event.
Known to many as Chimney Fire’s Head of Chatting, Sam is responsible for all aspects of shouting about our brand - which he does with gusto and to anybody who is willing to listen. A former professional French Horn player with a penchant for running further than is sensible, Sam heads up our marketing and community programmes alongside advising new coffee partners on barista skills and how to get the best out of their equipment. He has been known to consume an entire family-sized pie in one sitting.
Fran looks after our wholesale partnerships, having joined us in September 2023. She has worked for fellow B Corps in the past and is proud to reduce her daily carbon footprint by cycling to work. Fran's enthusiasm for great coffee runs deep... as a 17 year old, she had her own personal filter machine on her bedroom bookshelf so she could experiment with different blends and stay caffeinated while studying!
With almost a decade of experience as a roaster, Elizabeth is passionate about getting the best out of every bean that comes her way - with an unwavering nerve and a keen ear for a first crack. A committed and year-round user of Tooting Lido, she loves roasting and drinking coffee almost as much as she loves Wim Hof and cold water swimming!
Alongside her coffee roasting responsibilities, Neroli takes charge of all things picking, packing, and keeping the fulfilment process running smoothly. A lover of the great outdoors, when not at work she can usually be found either on or in her local waterways, via SUP or an evening dip! Coped admirably when we left her to fend for herself in our old unit for a fortnight, while the rest of us did up the new place.
Since joining us in May 2022 as our main content creator, Nathan has branched out to assisting with every aspect of our brand including marketing, training, and production. His background of stunning landscape and travel photography helps him shoot beautiful photos of our roastery and our local area - it’s fair to say our production values have jumped since he came on board. Exactly 3 times more productive when listening to The Beatles.
After starting work in a café, Jamie fell right down the coffee rabbit hole. This led him straight to Chimney Fire, where he now works as production assistant. A keen interest in music has him in a band, creating and performing music with his guitar. When not working or playing, he can be found nerding out in a Dungeons and Dragons game. Unfortunately for the rest of the team, Jamie is known for bad puns and dad jokes galore.
Anna started working with us in September 2023. She loves coffee (of course!) and baking…. Two days before her wedding, she whipped up 120 cupcakes! When not crunching numbers, she is also an amateur runner, loves a bit of yoga, chilling to 90s trance, and enjoys family walks in the countryside.
The real boss around here. Duties include lunch break enforcement (walkies), doorbell notifications (woofs), and emotional support (cuddles). Will howl for treats.
