The next part of my journey began by learning the history of coffee, types of species, processing methods, grinding and brewing, including the cupping (special ways to taste coffee for its individual characteristics) which I learned from experts.
My vision was close to completion. All I had to do was put what I learned into practice, and established my first coffee shop using the finest beans as the heart and soul of my guests' drinks.
My first coffee shop was a kiosk bar in a small shopping mall. I used to finish my daytime work at the family business and at night went to my shop which I called "small spot of joy". My little business was doing well and my guests were appreciating and enjoying the drinks. At that stage there was still no name my little coffee shop, and I turned to my loyal guests for their choices for giving their regular place a name.
Many names were suggested, however, none was convincing enough to use. Then came the design of our logo and I thought: "It must have white for purity of our beans, green for the color that my mother feels optimistic about and for the green hills of Kenya and & Ethiopia, the steep mountain sides of Columbia and of course the high terraces of Jamaica". Finally, I included gold to represent the richness of the land and great coffee.
The moment had arrived when all had to make a decision and we did. From my vision and passion, and with the real taste of coffee, I present to you, straight from the heart, dr.CAFE COFFEE.
