Meet our staff

We are a UK based coffee company and are celebrating our 8th year in business! We have just over 4000 customers across mainly the UK and Ireland. We do occasionally supply to customers in Europe and the US.

We work with independent technical engineers across the UK but our team of operational staff deals with management, planning, accounts, website design and maintenance. In addition to our permanent staff, we also from time-to-time employ free-lance staff and apprentices.

We realise the internet and the world of online shopping can be pretty faceless. That's why we wanted to introduce some of our key staff to you and put faces to voices and e-mails.

Marketing, Business Analysis and Planning

Paul works part-time for Jurang. His background in running successful online businesses, his belief in Fairtrade and his love for (very) strong espresso meant that he is the perfect man to oversee Jurang's ongoing development of an attractive and reliable internet brand.

This has resulted in Jurang supplying large clients including some top UK universities, the Equality & Human Rights Commission and KPMG as well as independent, small businesses across the UK, from cafes to restaurants and from offices to conference centres.

Paul is married and likes to take to the outdoors in his spare time. He is a keen runner with a marathon and various 10k charity runs under his belt. Paul is also a motorsport enthusiast who can set down a pretty mean lap time himself if necessary.

Programming & Design

Sam is our programming and design guru. He is responsible for all the things that you can see on the website but also for all the things that you can't see but that enable you to see what you can see. Sam also loves having lots of monitors.

You will probably never speak to Sam but through the code he is always speaking to you...

In his spare time, Sam likes finding more monitors. He is also a keen F1 supporter and he has been to Silverstone to witness 'great things' a number of things. Finally, he likes tinkering with computers and designing things for his World Domination Program (WDP).



Image of Corniel Quak-WinslowName: Corniel Quak

Corniel founded Jurang in 2009. He is originally from Holland. This meant the continental appreciation for good coffee was in  his blood from a young age. He was horrified when he was served a cup of instant coffee in a coffee shop when he first moved to the UK in 2003!

But he was not just passionate about good coffee, he was even more passionate about Fair Trade. Corniel started Jurang with a friend at his local Anglican Parish Church in Greater Manchester, selling Fairtrade products after the Sunday morning services. It soon turned into a business and in the 10 years that followed he grew Jurang into one of the UK's leading ethical coffee companies.

In 2019 he took a step back from the daily operations but continues to serve as an advisor to the business. He is currently exploring a Christian vocation and hopes to be an Anglican Priest one day.
