Our Team

Meet our people.

Jemima & Ben

Ben & Jemima Gleeson / owners, founders, coffee lovers

Combining Ben's wealth of knowledge in coffee and Jemima's passion for people, these two are indeed a dynamic duo.
They, along with their kids; Adele, Coco and Violet live on the Central Coast. 


Chris & Beth Gleeson / owners, founders, coffee lovers

Chris and Beth keep us on the forefront of the coffee scene. While Chris is permanently in pursuit of the perfect espresso, Beth has a wonderful way with all things creative. Chris and Beth spend much of their time making music in their home studio in Newcastle and hanging out with their two kids, River and Abel.

Wholesale team


Nick Gleeson / head roaster

Head roaster, handsome devil & middle Gleeson brother. When Nick isn't roasting coffee he is playing bass, drinking fine whiskey and researching conspiracy theories. 


Lenae Marks / Admin & Accounts

Our resident details person, Lenae keeps us all in check. When she's not drinking her latest green smoothie creation, she is hanging out with her husband Dan & their cute dog Shay.


Jesse Milani / wholesale manager

As wholesale manager, Jesse looks after all our Glee Coffee stockists. When Jesse isn't passionately telling strangers how to pronounce the word "espresso", he is chilling with his wife Lizzy and their two kids, Sam & Breezy. 


Laura Robertson / Social Media &

Laura's job is to make us look good online. When she's not drinking, thinking, writing about or taking photographs of coffee, she is unashamedly listening to Mariah Carey's greatest hits album and laughing at her own Instagram captions. 


Justin Smith / TEchnical Support

Justin is essentially our in-house utility knife. He repairs, customises and occasionally hugs the coffee machines. He roasts coffee & makes a mean pourover. When he's not doing all of the things, Justin is hanging with his wife Katie & their super cute son, Noah. 


Keelan & Emily Bates / REtail Managers

Keelan and Emily manage all our retail stores. When they aren't being couple goals behind the machine, they look after our wonderful retail team and (occasionally) fight about who is better at latte art.
