The story of Talormade starts with the story of Talor Browne. Talor has worked in the coffee industry for almost 20 years. She started out slinging 'chinos at local coffee shops in her home town of Albury Wodonga before shipping off to Mebourne in the early 00's to be part of the burgeoning scene there. Under the watchful gaze of legends like Mark Dundon, Bridget Amor (Brother Baba, Seven Seeds), Fleur Studd and Bobby Green, Talor built her knowledge by working with the best in the business.
In 2011 a message late at night on Facebook took her to the other side of the world to lead the team at Coutume in Paris in opening their second location and a chance meeting at the Nordic Barista Cup had her moving again in 2012 to work for Tim Wendelboe where she quickly rose through the ranks to the coveted position of head roaster.
After so many years in the business, she couldn't help feel that specialty coffee wasn't as friendly and welcoming as it could be...
"Wouldn't it be nice to have super high-quality coffee but without all the attitude?" She thought.
This thought bloomed into an idea that launched her first company: Talor&Jørgen, a roastery that ended up totally changing the specialty coffee game and shipped to over 50 countries in it's first year.
The whole idea was simple: roast delicious coffees the way that people like them, be transparent and kind and most importantly: have fun!
That's where the doughnuts entered the picture… and Talormade was born.
