One Great Coffee was founded by 2-60+-year-old kids who love great coffee! Brewing coffee from destinations from all over the world is one of our favorite past times. It is not uncommon to find us searching Online looking for small-batch roasters who share the same passion as we do.

We ordered Jamaica Blue Mountain Blend on the initial order; we use this blend as our measuring stick. OMG, we loved this coffee! We could not wait to order more and did so after the 1st cup. Our second order included Organic Bali Blue Moon, Ethiopia Yirgacheffe, and Panama Boquete. Again, we enjoyed each one! Our third order would dip our toes in flavored coffees. The third order included: Bourbon Whiskey (our favorite flavored coffee), Pumpkin Spice, Old Fashioned Gingerbread, Southern Pecan, and Salted Caramel. We loved each one!
As I stated earlier, we are in our 60's and retirement is something we hope to do before our departure on this earth occurs. We have always sold online, either selling an item we made ourselves or made by others for extra income. We reached out to this roaster in hopes of opening a wholesale account. After filling out the application, the roaster accepted us.
One of our past endeavors included fundraising for high school-age students and teachers to raise money for teachers' travel expenses and income for classroom supplies. It was our way of giving back to those who have a special place in our hearts, school teachers. If not for them, the respite these teachers provided and their tireless efforts made teaching our Autistic child while attending school will always hold dear in our hearts. We fundraised for close to 10 years. While we are proud to say that we decided to close our doors on our fundraising business, our little fundraising company held the honor of endorsements from the State of Texas Career and Technology Student Organization and Oklahoma's Career and Technology Student Organizations.
We were endorsed by the State of Texas Future Teachers Organization as well. It was a bittersweet decision to stop, but knowing the small impact, we made in those students' lives by providing an avenue to earn discretionary income for competition travel and dues. We also offered the same opportunity for their teachers to earn money to help purchase classroom supplies instead of using their own money.
What we are the most proud of is at the end of each school year; we funded scholarships for each of those three organizations to a student who excelled based on each organization's criteria. Our future depends on our youth, hopefully we made some sort impact.
We hope you soon decide to travel the world with us, one sip at a time!
Hope to hear from you, let's share One Great Coffee together!
