Death Wish Coffee Company is made up of a small but growing team. We want to take you inside our headquarters to introduce to some of the team members that make it all come together.
When you open up a fresh bag of Death Cups or Odin Cups, you may have Jake to thank. He is one of the awesome members of our production team who spends his day surrounded by coffee beans.
How long have you been at Death Wish and what is your job?
I've been packing coffee here for just over a year.
What does a typical day look like for you?
Lately, my day consists of packing 1lb and 5lb bags of either ground or whole bean coffee. After we all eat around noon, most of the production team gets together to play either basketball or ping pong. Then we all go back to our stations to finish out the day packing more coffee.
What do you like most about working with coffee?
Other than being able to drink it whenever I want? It's a toss-up between perfecting the systems we use to produce our coffee, and going home smelling like Death Wish!
What is your life motto?
As long as nobody's getting hurt, if it feels good: do it!
