About us


When Mike and Medora Safai stumbled into the coffee world, they they lit a spark of passion for exploration that would soon become a driving force in their continued pursuit of perfection in the craft.

In 1998, the couple opened their first store in Louisville, Kentucky.

The 72 square foot drive-thru kiosk was a humble beginning, but it was inside of that kiosk that the Safais built a curiosity for coffee into a love for it.

Rather than forcing coffee to suit them, the Safais learned to understand and adapt their roasting techniques to the strengths and depths of each individual bean.

“We look forward to sharing our passion and creating a roast profile specifically for you.”
– Mike and Medora Safai
