  • Nicholas Naso: National Sales Manager

    Prior to starting at Toby’s I always perceived the company to be at the forefront of the specialty coffee industry, I’m glad that this proved to be a reality once I started working with the company.

    Working with specialty coffee everyday is something I love and I feel almost spoiled to be able to work alongside like minded passionate people and create industry leading products.

    Toby’s is a dynamic company and an exciting workplace. In the 3 years being part of Toby’s family we have further increased our quality control, sourced coffee direct from sustainable sources, opened international roasting facilities and will continue to evolve into the future. With the training offered, our staff have the opportunity to constantly develop their careers.

    Toby’s Estate has always raised the bar in sourcing, roasting and supplying a quality product with the highest service level, which is ingrained in our team. We enjoy what we do and continue to push the boundaries for speciality coffee.

  • Chris Bonney: Head Roaster

    I met Toby in 1999 when I was manager at one of his first accounts. We bonded over a shared love of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe. In my 13 years with Toby’s I’ve done just about everything one can do in coffee – brew, roast, blend, source, cup and deliver. At the moment I’m particularly excited about our future work with the new plantation, Finca Santa Teresa. The opportunities at Toby’s are virtually unlimited!

  • Paul Golding: National Green Bean Buyer and Commodities Manager

    I’ve been at Toby’s for 8 years now, I came here to learn more about the origins of coffee and develop my knowledge. In that time, I’ve had the opportunity to progress from Barista to National Green Bean Buyer, travelling all over the world and working with a team dedicated to quality and craftsmanship.

    Toby’s respects and values everyone in the team and if you show initiative and focus, the company supports you 100%. I even have the privilege of incorporating my personal interests of photography and design into my day-to-day role. I can’t think of anywhere else I’d rather be.
