Ten minutes with Toby’s Estate
We were lucky enough to catch up with the talented Nich Rae, Head Roaster at Toby’s Estate. We chatted inspiration, food, rappers and (of course) coffee.
MICE: Who would you choose to have a coffee with and why?
Nich Rae: For sure, I would have to say New York rapper Joe Budden. His insights into rap and rap culture would make for a fantastic experience. Plus, he likes coffee!
MICE: What is one thing nobody knows about Toby’s Estate?
Nich: Good question! I would say it’s the fact that we have eight certified Q-graders within our team. By the end of 2018 we’re aiming to have 15!
MICE: What is your favourite moment of the day/week and why?
Nich: Definitely Monday – the roastery is humming and everyone is flat to the boards, and crushing it. At the end of a Monday I always feel extremely satisfied.
MICE: What inspires you?
Nich: My Dad, as well as my team, inspires me. I think it takes a while to truly understand what it means to provide for a family and that’s what drives me; to make my father proud. My other inspiration is my team, seeing them grow and become successful in their own right inspires me to make sure there is always a future at Toby’s Estate for them.
MICE: What is the best food to pair with your coffee?
Nich: This is tough, as I do love my food and coffee! However, I would have to say banana bread.
