Our story is as much the tale of a beautiful partnership between our three founders, Zelalem Girma Bayou, Michael McIntyre, and Emily McIntyre as it is the chronicle of small business success under challenging circumstances. First connecting during the 2013/14 Ethiopian coffee harvest, the trio dug in and learned the murky ins and outs of the national coffee system with absolute stubbornness and determination. What emerged, over the years of challenges and triumphs, is a dynamic, vertically-integrated coffee importing business that is redefining how specialty coffee is pursued.
We are Ethiopian-American owned, woman-led, and devoted to equality. Our values of Sustainability, Excellence, and Innovation drive us in every facet of our business. And we are changing coffee for the better, forever.
