The fine people of Five Senses Coffee.

When Five Senses started out, we were committed to building a business that we had fun working at. Turns out, succeeding at that is all about surrounding yourself with amazing people. Over the years, the Five Senses team has grown to a lively, warm group of people, all of whom show incredible care for not only their work but also their colleagues and all those we work with at origin and in cafes. In addition to being a swell bunch of individuals, they’ve got some serious coffee chops behind them – from cafe owners to baristas, world coffee championship judges to Q graders a-plenty, their collective expertise is a rich resource they’re always keen to share.

We’re incredibly proud of our crew – they’re what make this journey so much fun.

Dean Gallagher Founder & Owner With enough energy to power a semi-conductor, drinking coffee is probably overkill for Dean. Force of nature entrepreneur, he loves big steak Fridays, an aged red wine and turning everyone up to 11. Willfully stuck on old school ristrettos.

Jason Gray CEO New to the CEO role, Jason has been with Five Senses for 10 years. Comes from a finance background but there’s way more to him than just numbers. His latte art swans are a disgrace but no one has the heart to tell him. He loves a random movie quote, bleeds dockers purple, and talks a lot of trash on the ping pong table.

Nurturing Five Senses through to its teenage years, Shaughan was our first CEO from 2009-2016, before heading up everything international.

Jacob Ibarra Director of Coffee​ Our exotic import from the US of A, Jacob's significantly upped our quota of contracted pronoun 'y'all'. An ex-Texan turned Seattle-ite, Jacob jumped down under and now oversees our coffee program, having traversed a barista, roaster, trainer and customer support career. Since joining us, he's interspersed cuppings with sessions honing his ping pong skills for lethal intent.

Jeremy Hulsdunk Sales & Customer Support Manager Besides being a walking encyclopedia on coffee, Jeremy is also a certifed Q Grader, two time WA Barista Champ, WA Latte Champ and WA Cupping Champ! With so many accolades nestled in his pool room, you'd think they were his best feature, but no! It's his witty charm and love for pink and grey galahs.

Richard Muhl Technical Services Manager After working in Calibration Labs for the Navy and Air Force, the world of specialty coffee showed Richard what complex really looks like. He's a master of all things technical and a shining light of quantification, logic and process. Combine this with his love of coffee and he is the Liam Neeson of our industry ... he has a particular set of skills.
