White Whale Coffee Roasters Ali
Name: Ali
Position: Co-owner
About: Post Global Financial Crisis was the the perfect time for Ali to throw in her dream government job as an Environmental Protection Officer to co-found a coffee business - really?! While some called her mad, Ali isn’t one to shy away from a challenge and is our resident risk taker, pushing White Whale to the very best it can be. With several stints running the business from afar in NZ, Ali has recently made Cairns home again with husband Stephen and son Lewis. The coffee industry has fulfilled the opportunity for Ali to practice some of her philanthropic ideals by establishing a corporate sponsorship with the Reef Restoration Foundation & providing employment pathways for youth.
