The Short Story


Founder Derek McKeith’s vision to create Bad Beans Coffee Company was rooted early on from his training and experiences working at neighborhood coffee houses as a barista. His enthusiasm for fresh java continued as he began traveling abroad while on the road creating and promoting his own original music. It was then that Derek found himself engaging and conversing with fans and the locals about coffee more often than music. Over the years, Derek studied and learned the processes of coffee making from seed to cup cultivating the beginnings of Bad Beans Coffee.
