We have a new Roaster!

We'd like to introduce and welcome Mieke Fonteyn into our Kohana Coffee fold as our new Roaster. She comes to us with more than a decade in the coffee industry and we love what that adds to our team.

What she loves...in her words -

-what I love about coffee is the intricacy of each cup, how every origin, degree of temperature and care of growers and roasters makes a difference in the final product.
-what I love about the industry is that life moments often happen over great cups of coffee, I am passionate about being a part of that.
-what I love about Kohana is the care we take in ensuring the purchasing and roasting to provide the best spectrum of flavor in each bag and being part of something women/locally owned and operated.
-favorite coffee = Org Ethiopian Harrar
-favorite place to drink coffee = our roasting warehouse in SATX (South Austin for those not from around here)
-love live music (especially hip hop)
-love my dog a jack Russell pug named Rocco

Welcome Mieke, we're glad you're here!
