Bequest Coffee Co is a family-owned coffee shop that thrives to offer our customers what is the best in the market. With food options that pleases all palates we always work with grade A products and top rated distributors.
Coffee has been a passion in the family for generations and it's our intent to share this with our customers and partners. Vinny is the one responsible for making this magic happen. He is one of the owners and the head barista at our shop. He has years of experience training, serving and experimenting with coffee and is his full-time job to make every single person leave the store with a smile in the face and caffeine in the system.
To help him out we have Andi (Vinny's wife) the second owner.
Andi also share the love for coffee, but more than that she is passionate about connecting with people and tends to apply all her experience helping our customers connect with our brand and products. She is a very good listener and will do everything she possibly can to make your visit at the shop more pleasant and special.
And last but far from less important we have Lily (our third owner), the "Matriarch"of the family. The word to define her would be "love". She put love in everything that she does, and is always with a smile in her face. She feels fulfilled by helping others and when she is not at the shop she is doing volunteer work for the church.
This is just part of the operation, part of the family. Be assured that we have above all, one goal, to build a strong community based on respect, gratitude and inclusion. A community that we proudly call family.
Thank you so much for your support!
"A customer is the most important visitor on our premises. They are not dependent on us. We are dependent on them. They are not an interruption of our work but the purpose of it. They are not an outsider of our business, is part of it. We are not doing they a favor by serving them. They are doing us a favor by giving us the opportunity to do so.” - Mahatma Gandhi
We care not only about what we serve and aside of looking after quality we also want to make sure that we are doing our share for a better world and that is why we choose our distributors very well. All of our beans are 100% organic, Arabica and Certified Fair Trade and/or Direct Trade.
Fair trade coffee and direct trade coffee are sourced following a strict set of rules that ensure products improve the living conditions of small farmers and are produced with sustainable practices. This organizations ensures that buyers contribute to sustainability and community development initiatives. They also make sure that growers have the tools to improve their living standards.
Moreover, sourcing coffee ethically means that roasters can have greater control over the quality and social sustainability of their beans.
We strongly believe that if every single person get out of your comfort zone and do one act of kindness we could all live in a better world and provide one even better for our childrens. Kindness results in Kindness.
