DJ started roasting 2 years ago as a hobby and to indulge his love for coffee. As a home brewer and winemaker, he is obsessed with making the things he drinks. He decided to learn how to roast his own beans. Sharing his roasted beans with friends and family everyone encouraged him to sell his awesomeness. DJ and his wife, Angela, are educators in West Virginia and have had students come to class without jackets in the winter or basic essentials such as underwear or socks. They wanted to come up with a way to fill this need and help the children in their community and caffeinated the masses.
