The Bold Bean story started over 10 years ago, just as a hobby in a garage. Bold Bean has become a way for us to deeper develop relationships with not only our friends in our city, but also with our producing partners in the countries where we source coffee.
We stand by our mission statement:
WE WILL SOURCE, ROAST, BREW AND SERVE OUTSTANDING COFFEE.
WE WILL LEARN CONTINUOUSLY AND FOSTER COMMUNITY.
WE WILL BE GOOD PEOPLE AND HAVE FUN.
Bold Bean Coffee Roaster, Founding Partner
Founding Partner, Jay Burnett, launched Bold Bean Coffee Roasters in 2007 as a follow-up to a nearly 30-yearcareer as an award winning journalist and magazine editor. "Sometimes you just have to stop and smell the coffee," says Bold Bean's founder, when discussing his decision to walk away from publishing to write a new chapter in life. These days Burnett prefers staying in the background and as he puts it, "out of the way." Our team has created something special here," he says. "I just want to see how far they can take it."
