Why Coffee?

"As a college student, I worked as a barista at a hospital coffee shop. I was given the freedom to be creative and try new recipes, as well as, learn the ends and outs to running a coffee shop. This was truly when I felt the most creative and free!"

What is your overall goal?


The Pipers set out to create a business doing something we love and finding creative ways to share our love of coffee with others. We encourage entrepreneurship with our kids and ultimately teaching them the importance of developing something that would allow them to give back to their community.

This is our primary reason for using local roasters for our coffee, local merchants for our t-shirts, and plan to hire locally when open a physical location. We want to make a difference where we live first then we'll be able to expand into other communities, cities, and states.
