The idea was to create a name that got people asking "why 18?". This was a great conversation starter on the not so coincidental fact that our our numbers from the field combined resulted in 18. This often leaves our inquisitive guest with wry smile across their face.
Coffee has been a passion for some time, and the graduation from passion (and idea) to product happened a lot more quickly than we anticipated. Follow this, Phil meets a man on a plane, man's son (Matt, our roaster) roasts coffee, Phil curiously calls up Matt, Matt throws us a couple blends, we take just over a month to nail down our roast, a friend offers to put together a label, and et voila we have a bag of coffee.
Since then we've been working hard to make sure we have the necessary structures in place to be able to deliver the coffee and slowly grow our distribution. We're fresh and new and very very excited about entering this world and hope that you can join us on this journey to making Eighteen Coffee the brew of choice in many homes.
