Tricia Zimmer Ferguson didn’t set out to be in the coffee business, but looking back at her java-fueled youth, she realizes it was probably her destiny.
“I have this picture from back when I was in high school with my now-husband, and we both have coffee cups in hand,” Zimmer Ferguson recalls. “He would pick me up for school, and I would have travel cups for us every morning. I’ve been a coffee lover since I was 14. So much of what we’ve done has been brought to us by coffee.”
