What’s your name and where are you from?
Kenan Kiziloz, I'm from Turkey and I am Kurdish.
What does a day at Dear Green look like for you?
It’s so welcoming for me. Everybody is so nice to each other and fully proactive at working. I’m learning every single day!
What's your favourite way to brew? Do you have any brewing tips?
Moccamaster filter brewing is my favourite. My tip is to always purge the grinder with the beans you're using before you grind and brew. If you are using different origins of coffee beans each time you brew you can affect the flavour of the next brew if you don't purge. You don't want the flavour to be influenced by another coffee.
Your favourite Dear Green coffee?
I could say all of them! But my current favourite is Colombia AMACA.
What do you like most about working for a B Corporation?
I’m so glad I’m part of a B Corporation business. We do our job but at the same time we care about our people and about the future of our planet.
Aside from coffee, what are your passions?
I love cooking. I used to work as a chef and I like to cook my traditional food. I also love to dance :)
If you could have coffee with anyone in the world, who would it be and why?
Dr. Sheldon Lee Cooper (Jim Parsons). I have been watching The Big Bag Theory over and over. He is so funny!
What's something everyone should know about Dear Green?
Dear Green does coffee in a truly ethical way!
What’s your favourite thing about specialty coffee?
When I drink specialty coffee I can identify complex flavour notes from the coffee origins.
