Our Origin Story
Figment was established in 2017 by Neil Glover. The journey to get there however, was not staightforward. Neil shares the Figment origin story below including how a law suit for millions of dollars against him – back when he had no coffee experience and a career in Oil & Gas, led him to a fluke encounter with a “life changing latte”.
The specialty coffee industry absorbed Neil almost immediately, and from from that moment, through the kindness of strangers like Greenway and in particular Russell Hayward at Ascension, opening their and his experience and expertise up without agenda, Neil found an almost instant love of coffee, the industry and the people involved, so much so that he left Oil & Gas and started Figment Coffee back home in Aberdeen.
