Our Team

Carola Mapp

Head roaster Carola, relocated to the UK in 2014 after years spent working in speciality coffee in Germany.

A self-confessed perfectionist, Carola is as meticulous in her study of coffee as she is in the practical skill of roasting it. Having already gained plaudits for her roast profiles, we expect Carola to be an award-winning roastmaster.

Tash Murphy

Pharmacie manager and creative designer. After years of freelance illustration and managing coffee counters, Tash is passionate about creating a beautiful space which focuses on excellent hospitality, great produce, and even better atmosphere.

Tash loves making hand brew filter coffee and will happily recommend you a single origin coffee to try at Pharmacie or take a bag of beans home with you.

Rick Curtis

Pharmacie director Rick hails from Portland, Oregon, one of the world's meccas for speciality coffee, microbreweries and the great outdoors.

He brought his love of all these things to Brighton where he opened Ground Coffee House in 2009. Pharmacie was subsequently born out of a desire to expand his knowledge of the industry while gaining creative control over the quality of his roasted coffee. 

A keen mountain, trail and road runner, when not working 60-hour weeks you'll find Rick training for his next race.
