Square Mile Coffee Roasters
London, UK
Anette Moldvaer is co-founder of Square Mile Coffee Roasters, a multi award winning coffee roasting company based in East London. She started her career in coffee as a barista in Norway 16 years ago, and since coming to the UK in 2003 she has worked in green coffee imports, education and training, cupping, roasting and green coffee buying. She has years of experience as a UK and World Barista championship judge, Cup of Excellence juror and Q grader. She roasted the winning coffee of the World Barista Championship three years in a row, and her cupping skills led her to win the World Cup Tasters Championship in 2007.

The same year she co-founded Square Mile Coffee Roasters, wanting to make London famous for good coffee and furthering the appreciation of specialty coffee in London and the UK. Since the launch of Square Mile, the company, its staff and customers have won numerous awards for their product. Her book ‘Coffee Obsession’ came out in the summer of 2014 and has just been awarded ‘Best Coffee Book’ UK in the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards. Anette now buys the green coffee for Square Mile and travels extensively year round to visit her coffee producing partners, making sure she sources the best coffees available.
