Grinders Coffee was founded in 1962 by a passionate roaster who knew locally roasted coffee is best. Grinders has since become a titan in the coffee industry. Our roastery in Melbourne is where all the magic happens, utilising the latest technology and innovation to ensure the highest quality coffee in every cup.

As part of the CCEP family, Grinders Coffee is a well-established brand, consistently delivering exceptional coffee to customers across Australia. But to us, Grinders Coffee represents more than a drink to start the day; it encompasses an entire experience. We have some great people in our team helping to deliver this experience to our customers.

Meet Jasper:

Jasper Howard-Hennessy love for coffee is evident, but his role as Territory Manager for Grinders Coffee in the Sydney region extends far beyond the simple pleasure of sipping a cup of coffee. As the territory manager, he takes ownership of his region, ensuring that every corner of Sydney has access to the finest coffee experience.

Each day begins with a fresh brew of coffee, and from there, no two days are the same. Responsible for developing and implementing strategic initiatives, Jasper splits his time between the Grinders office and visiting cafes and establishments, where he serves as the first point of contact and trusted coffee expert.

To deliver a top tier experience for customers, Jasper collaborates closely with the Grinders family, leveraging their collective expertise to navigate the ever-changing landscape and deliver the best for customers. Much like a finely crafted blend of coffee, the role of territory manager combines business acumen and strategic planning, all underpinned by a passion for coffee.

Jasper thrives in the dynamic nature of his role, embracing daily challenges and opportunities to make a meaningful impact in the ever-evolving world of coffee. And, of course, there’s the added perk of getting to taste-test new blends along the way!
