Who we are
1980 - Winter Park, Florida
Barnie, the humble hero of our story, needed to sleep. But, as a young mapmaker working late into the night, he needed a good cup of coffee even more. Luckily, on one of his many globetrotting adventures, Barnie's tired feet led him to a peculiar Peruvian coffee shrub – and the best coffee beans he'd ever seen.
He returned home with new friends, new memories and, most importantly, a plan. A mission to put this amazing coffee within reach of everyone's cup. Barnie didn't get much sleep that year, but he did get to make his dream come true.
Almost four decades later, Barnie's Coffee & Tea has won prizes at international coffee competitions for its flavored and single-origin coffees. But winning gold feels kind of hollow when there's no one to share it with. So we make sure to make the little things count. To make memories for you, with you. We don't play games, we don't do coffee snobbery. We just strive to be as simple, honest and good as a great cup of coffee. Your cup of coffee. Wherever you go, we want to be right there with you.
