“Chapolera Coffee has utilized the guidance of the SBDC in many ways from the formulation of the company to execution of the business plan.” – co-owner Jenny Bueno

Jenny Bueno was born in the coffee region of Colombia and always dreamed of owning her own coffee company. Recently, both Jenny and her husband Art Baker began working to make this dream a reality. From the inception of their business, Jenny and Art have worked closely with the SBDC through one-on-one coaching sessions and attending many classes presented by the SBDC.

Chapolera Coffee offers packaged whole bean and ground coffees, as well as nitro-cold brewed coffee in kegs and bottles. Jenny adds, “The main aspect our company stands for is that we bring a true single-origin coffee to our customers. We know exactly who we are buying from, how the coffee was harvested and that they have friendly environmental practices.”

Chapolera can be found in a growing number of farmers markets, specialty restaurants, and coffee shops, and they recently negotiated a deal for distribution in Broulim’s grocery stores. Art and Jenny hope to continue to increase sales, expand production of current products and introduce new ones. They plan to utilize the SBDC resources to continue to build a solid foundation for exponential growth in the future.
