“I will always love our Ethiopian offerings and I enjoy a good natural coffee, but our go to morning filter in the school is from Guatemala, Finca Las Nubes. We always have this on hand, roasted by the wonderful Carvetii. Those chocolate and vanilla tastings notes are a great start to any morning.”
Gayle has managed the London School of Coffee since it was founded in 2004 and oversaw the design and installation of the school’s current labs.
Previously, Gayle worked in film postproduction in central London (we suspect they also tried to grab her gorgeous self for screen work, but we are lucky she resisted). Her career in coffee began in 2001 when she joined Mercanta, where she assisted with all aspects of the business – from sample roasting and cupping, to sales and shipments.
Since joining the London School of Coffee, Gayle has led field trips to both Nicaragua and Guatemala to visit producers and learn more about the coffee supply chain. She has also represented the London School of Coffee at numerous coffee events and exhibitions in Europe and Japan.
Currently, Gayle’s main role is to work alongside her fabulous trainers and ensuring that they have all the support they need to provide our diverse range of courses. Managing the LSCs booking systems, social media, website, accounts and most importantly, she nurtures and ensure that the schools reputation in this industry is maintained.
