Scottish-born Lisa Lawson found coffee by way of a job while traveling through Australia, and it stuck: She revolutionized specialty coffee in the city of Glasgow when she opened her coffee roastery Dear Green 12 years ago. Lisa prioritizes treating people—everyone from coffee producers to her employees—ethically and with fair compensation. She has won a lot of awards for her efforts, too, and has guided Dear Green to B Corp certification. We’re ecstatic to feature Lisa in this issue of Barista Magazine and hope you find her story as inspiring as we do.

Barista Magazine’s Online Editor J. Marie Carlan was astounded by the grinder technology unveiled at HOST Milano in late 2023—so much so that we thought it deserved an article all its own.

The coffee-tech sector has long been dominated by male-identifying professionals, but increasingly it’s women who are putting in the work and effort to drive the skill-based work forward. To celebrate them, as well as discuss what challenges they have faced and what advice they have for others looking to get into coffee tech, longtime coffee tech business owner Jon Ferguson interviewed leading women in the field for this fascinating story, “The Fix Is In: Women Leading the Equipment-Service Trade,“ in the February + March 2024 issue.
