Tell us about your company and what you do?
We specialize in specialty-grade single-origin coffee. We offer two sales channels; B2B (full office coffee service and set up for all types of businesses), and online retail sales and subscriptions.
How did you get started in your industry?
I’ve always been passionate about coffee, maybe because I was born and raised in Guatemala around some of the world’s best coffee. My great grandfather owned a coffee farm so coffee has been in our family for many years. My husband and business partner is from Virginia Beach and loves coffee too, however, he didn’t know that great specialty grade coffee is way more accessible than he thought possible. We quickly noticed this is the reality for many people in the US so we decided to jump in and make a change.
What is something about your business that most people do not know?
We understand every business is different, so we offer 100% custom solutions. We focus our business on three qualities: outstanding customer service, fair and competitive pricing, and making our customers’ lives easier.
Where do you see your business in 5 years?
Becoming a known coffee brand in Annapolis and the DMV area with brick and mortar locations.
Tell me about yourself?
American Force Coffee is our husband-wife team and my husband is active duty military. We moved from Georgia to Annapolis in mid-February of 2020 and everything shut down one month later, so it was quite the change! We also welcomed our son last year and live in Annapolis with our two dogs.
Other than work, what are you passionate about?
We love going out to eat and walking around downtown Annapolis on the weekends. We’re big fans of supporting local/small businesses and we’re working our way through trying every restaurant downtown.
What types of activities or hobbies do you enjoy outside of work?
Both of us love to play golf and visit new places around MD and DC. This is such a great area with lots of fun things to do!
Why did you choose My Annapolis Office and how has working here helped your business?
Our business is growing and we made our very first hire! That was when we knew we needed an actual office space. My Annapolis Office provided everything we were looking for and more!
