If you work in music festivals in Australia, you’ve likely heard of Matthew Jens.
No stranger to event production management, his lists of credentials and accomplishments are lengthy, having managed some of the most significant music events in Australia. Whether he is backstage at a gig or spending time with his family, Matthew would always bring a lively, positive attitude to any situation.
It’s not unusual to often find him competing in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or critiquing Hi-Fi gear. As a hobby, Matthew has been roasting coffee for five years – mainly for friends and family.
Since COVID-19 has paused the world of events, Matthew (like many others) lost the ability to do what he loved doing: gigs.
Matthew witnessed the devastating effect that COVID-19 has had on his colleagues, friends and community. He has turned to his coffee roasting passion for two reasons: to bring delicious, cafe-quality coffee into people’s lives, and to help those who need it most.
