FreshGround Roasting Cover Letter

Dear Mr. Anderson,

I’m interested in your customer service position as posted here on I’m a single, mostly-full-time working mom of two awesome kids, one of whom has recently pulled out of high school to be “unschooled”, so I’m looking to connect with a position from home so that I can be available for her. Since I believe in supporting positive community and connection wherever possible, your company stood out as one that helps create a more positive world. Every little bit counts.

I’ve been connected with coffee in one way or another since college, when I worked at a local coffee roaster in Corvallis, Oregon for a few years. My sister and her family have owned their coffee roaster in Astoria, Oregon (Columbia River Coffee Roaster) since 1992, so there’s a family coffee connection there. And I currently work as the Bookkeeping Coordinator for our local food co-op here in Kalamazoo where we pride ourselves on supporting small and/or local and/or sustainable growers and producers, including coffee.

I have years of customer service and office support experience, including retail and mail order sales, inventory and database management, and accounts payables and payroll. I’ve also worked with and am able to quickly learn the ins and outs of many various software programs, social media platforms, apps, etc., as needed for work and personal projects. I’m sure I can easily learn whatever it is you would need me to be using for this position.

Thanks for posting your opening through HireMyMom and giving us moms the chance to bring in some extra income and add to our job experiences! I look forward to connecting with you to talk about how I might be able to help you all out with whatever you need.


Kristi Montgomery
