This week we kick off the month of International Women’s Day with Aileen Ferella, Melbourne Head Roaster at Mocopan Coffee. We talk sustainability, history and quality coffee – and sneak in a bit of George Clooney!
MICE: What inspires you?
Aileen Ferella: It would have to be people all over Australia enjoying quality, consistent and freshly roasted coffee.
MICE: Who would you like to have a coffee with and why?
AF: I think I would have to pick George Clooney to have a Mocopan coffee with – purely to get coffee-related feedback of course!
MICE: What is your greatest achievement?
AF: I’d definitely have to say contributing to Mocopan being one of Australia’s most sustainable coffee roasters, and also the largest supplier of sustainable coffee.
MICE: What’s one thing people may not know about Mocopan Coffee?
AF: I think many may not know that Mocopan Coffee is one of the original coffee roasters in Australia, established in 1954 by the Monici, Coppercini and Panettieri families.
MICE: What’s your favourite food to pair with coffee?
AF: That’s an easy question. Chocolate for sure! It’s my guilty pleasure and goes great with everything – especially coffee.
