The Coffee Detective

Women Who Own It

Trendsetter. Trailblazer. Innovator. Entrepreneur.

If you are anything like our team, one of the first things you do in the morning is sip on a cup of coffee while gearing up for the day, checking emails, or taking the dog(s) outside. And while we certainly have our favorites, we are more than happy to try out a new brand– especially if it means supporting women-owned businesses in the process.

So, if you and I were to sit down to coffee, the first question I’d ask would be:

“What’s your relationship with coffee like?”

For many — it’s an experience, not just something to douse with sugar and gulp.

The world of coffee roasting is vast and rich. We've come so far from buying freeze-dried coffee granules from glass jars, with a lot of the general public finally discovering what it means to drink truly great coffee. It's not just about Arabica or Robusta anymore — no, we've all gone down the preverbal rabbit hole of coffee beans, learning everything from washed versus natural processing to just how the growing location of the coffee affects what your brew tastes like.
