Amanda Kencsan (b. 1987, Ashland, Ohio, USA) is a ceramicist, painter, stained glass and mixed media artist who lives and works in Ashland, Ohio. She uses different media depending on the subject, her mood and her audience. Having a variety of media affords her the chance to let the art be what it will become. She is inspired by those who use bright colors and intricate designs, especially street artists who tell a story through colorful expression. Being immersed in street art inspires creativity and happiness. Central to her art-making process is the idea of giving herself the freedom not to be confined by rules. She is not classically trained and this allows her to break rules she doesn’t even know exist. Most of her work is done at the Tin Can Chandelier in Ashland, Ohio.
Mission: We exist to enhance the lives of those who drink, serve and grow coffee.
Story: At Goldberry Roasting Company, we have the unique opportunity to be a part of coffee’s journey from the seed to the cup. Through our relationship with farmers in the Sierra Norte region of Mexico, we have had our hand in helping improve existing coffee crop and cultivate new, improved ways of processing coffee beans. Due to our close relationship with the coffee farms and farmers, we care about getting the roast profile of our coffee exactly right. We work hard to highlight the flavors that farmers around the world have spent generations creating and preserving. That’s why it is so important for us to roast our coffee in small batches. By keeping our roasts small, we can ensure that we are bringing out the unique flavor profiles of each individual bean and the farm and region it came from. When someone serves or drinks our coffee, they play an important role in passing on the story and history of the people who nurtured and cared for the coffee long before it ever made it to our roastery.
