It’s an amazing feeling knowing that we get to wake up every day and pursue our entrepreneurial dreams with our children watching it all unfold.
Liv, who will soon be two years old, is learning to use her words. She recognizes our "Black Coffee Co." label whenever she sees it.
"Foffy" is what she calls it.
My oldest daughter has been working for the business since the beginning.
From labeling coffee bags, pouring/grinding beans, or working at the pop-ups. Now she is seen as an expert across on our team, especially when it comes working our new point of sale system.
These accomplishments that we are now celebrating would not be possible if our own parents & community didn't support us.
All 5 founders come from low income & inner city communities. In order to make it out, we were directed to focus on education along with having a strong moral compass. Our parents instilled core values in us, that we now work daily to instill within our own children.
Hard work, compassion, friendship, patience, plus so much more.
When we launched Black Coffee, it was these values plus our new found life experiences that birthed our own "Raw Values."
Entrepreneurship, Financial Freedom. and Community Empowerment.
Thanks to the foundation that was built for us, we are now able to create these new raw values. Along with team goals and a shared vision that will take us all much further, than many ever dreamed.
Please know that it’s not that some us didn't think we would be successful, but seeing it all happen in real time, is such a blessed experience.
The kids aren't just watching us pursue collective economics.
They are actively participating in the creation of their own #GenerationalWealth every single day!
