Josh founded Coffee Story in 2018.
Based on his background in international relations, Josh was determined to build a company that valued its global supply chain, offering a fair deal to the producers at a good price for consumers.
Coffee Story aims to do just that; connecting consumers to producers through their real life stories, rewarding the producers each time you make a purchase.
Before starting Coffee Story, Josh was elected president of a students’ union, representing students in a variety of settings from local to national government, and to university bodies.
In this role, the importance of strong and fair representation was critical, and this is something Josh is determined to transpose into Coffee Story. By treating farmers and their cooperatives as partners – not just suppliers- and giving them a share in the end profits, it is Josh’s hope that Coffee Story will begin a revolution in the global supply chain for the worlds’ second most traded commodity.
