Meet the Maker:
Kathy Turiano founded Joe Bean with a small group of friends on a mission to break old cycles of inequality, create mutually beneficial, global friendships, and truly enjoy coffee that lifts everyone.
Joe Bean launched from an abundant love for people and coffee, both of which continue to be at the heart of all that we do. Along the way, our journey has brought us so much more than we could have ever imagined —friendships with coffee farmers, a wealth of coffee companions, and the immense opportunity to be a part of a movement of caring people changing the world a little at a time.
As direct trade coffee roasters, we connect our customers, both locally and nationally, to the award-winning, small scale network of farmers we’ve nurtured over the last ten years. Their stories are inspirational and their coffee exceptional — things our customers value. Honest sourcing, earth friendly practices, and product quality are important to us—we believe all three value people and lift everyone.
Together, we can break old cycles of inequality, create mutually beneficial, global friendships, and truly enjoy coffee that lifts everyone.
