Our Team

Every step of the way, from sampling, to roasting, to brewing, it’s the talent and the passion of our team that makes Greenstreet Coffee so special. So, let’s introduce you to the team….

Chris Molieri

Co-Founder / Coffee Roaster / Dedicated Entrepreneur

Before starting Greenstreet Coffee, Chris completed his undergraduate degree from Temple University in Finance. Chris likes brewing pour over coffee and when not roasting coffee he can be found hanging out with his 18 month old son, cycling, or listening to featured bands on Spotify. Chris has enjoyed living in Philadelphia for the past 9 years.

Chris has visited 6 coffee producing countries and would like to visit them all.

Aaron Beattie

Café Manager / Barista

While attending Mansfield University for audio engineering, Aaron had his first experience as a manager of a large performing arts venue. He finished his degree at Nyack College, north of Manhattan with an Interdisciplinary Studies degree with Music. Aaron lived for three years in Eastchester, NY, where he discovered a passion for working in the small-business world, customer service and management at a specialty sandwich shop. He and his wife Elizabeth moved to South Philadelphia in July 2019, where they bought their first home and plan to raise their family. Aaron was excited to join the Greenstreet Team in August and has fallen in love with Philadelphia’s people, culture, and specialty coffee scene. If he is not at the shop with his wife Elizabeth and pup Wesley, Aaron can be found playing video games, making music, and exploring Philadelphia.

Josh Thompson

Barista / Roaster/ Coffee Genius

Northern New Jersey born and raised. The second son of Don and Diane, with an appreciation for the hand crafted, pursued a degree in art at Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University. He graduated in 2015 with a BFA in Printmaking and a newly discovered obsession with the world of third wave coffee. Two years later, that obsession would come to fruition 1,200 miles south in sunny West Palm Beach, FL at Subculture Coffee Roasters. There he learned the art of espresso and peaked an interest in roasting. Another two laps around the sun and his pilgrimage to the endless summer complete, the bearded brother of Kris returned to the Northeast. Settling in the south of Philadelphia and picking up the torch here at Greenstreet. You can find him slinging spro and stacking tulips at 11th and Spruce, roasting those juicy juicy beans over on Alter St., or out shooting through a roll of film.
