It's funny where life takes you. If you ever asked me if I'd be a coffee roaster at 50 I'd say - "um, a what?". Honestly, I have always loved coffee and the idea of coffee connecting people with people, places, and solitude moments. I mean what is better than an old friend calling to ask, "want to go for coffee and catch up?" But the idea of making coffee for those people going out for coffee was never a thought - until it was then it just exploded.
The learning curve has been incredible. The highs and lows of starting a small business and remaining confident have been trying and honestly, at times we felt like giving up. But we kept going because we actually ended up getting very passionate about this craft. And we realized we started being happier and more connected when we were talking coffee, roasting coffee, experimenting with coffee, and designing this new adventure for ourselves.
