We are pleased to announce that Ffansi Coffi from Cardiff has been awarded the New Producer Bursary sponsored by Gower Cottage Brownies and AFF.
Owner Paula Gillam’s entry impressed Kate Jenkins (GCB.) “We finally chose Ffansi Coffi (amongst fierce competition!) as a deserving recipient of our inaugural New Producer Bursary Award for their interesting back-story and obvious passion for their products. We can’t wait to welcome them along to AFF and hopefully help them on their way to a fantastic future.”
Having previously had a career in healthcare, Paula wanted a completely new challenge to fit with family life. Combining her love for great coffee with the opportunity to run her own business has proved an absolute joy. She jumped at the opportunity to tap into / learn from Kate’s own business expertise and experience.
“It’s a blessing for someone who is trying to reinvent themselves and enthuse others with the delights of all things coffee, tea and hot chocolate!”
Ffansi Coffi will be selling coffee beans at the Festival – all hand roasted by Paula in small batches – as well as loose leaf tea, luxury hot chocolate and accessories. Their products are ethically produced and sourced.
