A loan helped hire an employee to grow my business, purchase more coffee, build solid relationships.
I grew up in a small town in Oregon. The one thing I remember being all over town was a coffee shop. Cafes, drive thru, all kinds of coffee. It was a quiet town. It was a great place to grow up. For the last 7 years, my wife and I have lived in Portland. We love the bustle of the big city. With myriad opportunities to learn about other cultures, eat great food, see great things. Being able to follow our dreams, my wife as a nurse, me though Intent Coffee Roasting, and both of us as parents to our two amazing kids. Our goal is to invest more into the coffee company, taking our kids on trips to meet the producers of coffee that we are buying from as well as building relationships. We hope to show our kids that we are connected in many to people all over the world.
