Bold Bean Coffee
Bold Bean Coffee has been making history ever since Jay Burnett launched the roasting company in 2007 in Jacksonville, Florida: from opening their first retail shop in 2011, expanding to three cafes and a roastery, to winning best coffee shop in Jacksonville for several years running.
These days Jay’s son, Zack Burnett (an avid surfer who calls the beach his “third place”), drives the vision of Bold Bean, buying their green coffee (including an increasing number of direct trade relationships) and overseeing daily operations.
The face behind our Loring (affectionately named Lorenzo) is Grant Sanders. Grant is always striving to roast better and better coffee and we love him for it.
The force and energy packing every single bag of Bold Bean Coffee with absolute speed and efficiency is Jeremy Atkins. This single human is responsible for every bit of our coffee that makes it out into the world- and its a lot.
Between Zack, Grant and Jeremy- Bold Bean Coffee Roasters is always a step ahead.
For Zack, coffee is a tool for promoting the wellbeing of others:
“I enjoy every day that we can positively affect people’s lives through the product we make and the interactions we have. These effects can stretch through the entire chain of coffee from producer to consumer. Not many jobs provide people with this opportunity, so for me, that’s pretty special.”
