We’re not the first to get excited about coffee, or even about cold brewed coffee. But when our curiosity took us to some small coffee farms in Colombia, we noticed they were doing things a little differently. Unlike their larger counterparts, obligated to deliver a known quantity, these smaller growers, producers, and exporters were free to try new things. And that’s the kind of thing that sparks the imaginations of a team with roots in craft beer, high tech startups, food science, and coffee innovation.
Riff Cold Brewed Coffee is Paul Evers, co-founder of Crux Fermentation Project; Nate Armbrust, former director of cold brew product development and brewing operations at Stumptown; Steve Barham, former senior director at LinkedIn; and Bobby Evers and Kevin Smyth, both with deep experience in craft beer branding and operations. Riff is also an enthusiastic and diverse tribe of investors, employees, partners, and you. We want this to be fun, and we always have more fun together.
