Courage is fear moving forward.
When my wife and I started the Mariposa Coffee Company 23 years ago we had a blend of courage and fear. Courage to take on a new challenge and the fear of failure. It was both of these emotions that fueled the success of our thriving business.
Now having learned to combat these emotions, we can move into the future prepared to launch new products and continue to improve our classics.
Great tasting coffee is our hallmark and wonderful customers are our cornerstone. We have counted on you for so much and we are grateful for your loyalty.
We look forward to the coming years with excitement and we will always remember our very first blend of courage and fear.

Relationships and coffee are foundational aspects of my life.
I produce and share coffee with family, drink coffee with friends and share coffee with customers.
Friends become family, and customers become friends – all because of coffee! My life is enhanced daily because of the intertwining of these two essentials. As I sit here with my cup of Mariposa Coffee, I look forward to welcoming you into my life!

Growing up in the beautiful foothills of Mariposa County, just below Yosemite National Park, I thought I was the luckiest kid in the world to call God's breathtaking wilderness my playground. To add to this blessing, I had two amazing parents who worked from home and were a constant, positive influence in my life.
As a child, I loved watching my father roast, transforming humble green coffee beans into a mug of rich, velvety goodness. When I was finally old enough to taste for myself, I quickly became aware that we had something special.
As an adult, I still have a child-like wonder for what my father is able to create, along with an understanding of the love and hard-work that goes into each and every cup.
I am excited and honored to be joining my parents as a partner in the family business-- a business I am proud to say is not only run by family, but also treats each customer like family. We hope you can come visit us here in "Coffee Country" and see what we're all about. It's truly because of each of you, your friendship and support, that we're able to do what we love.
Deepest thanks and God Bless!
