Hey there, thanks for checking us out! This coffee blog has been a long time coming, and I am so excited to be writing this now. I am Tom, founder and CEO of American Way Coffee.
We started this coffee journey in 2022, and what a ride it's been! We've traveled all over the world to meet different coffee roasters, partnered with some of the best distributors and recently also started a partnership with a local coffee store in Miami, Florida!
For my first blog post I wanted to let you know more about me and what you can expect to see here.
A little about myself, and my love for coffee
I was born and raised in Miami, Florida. I studied International Business, and specialized in linguistics. I am fluent in English, Spanish, French, Dutch, Portuguese and German, and love to travel. As a matter of fact, I have been to over 100 countries around the world, and it was during my travels that I became a bit of a coffeeholic.
Now, let's take that back a couple of years. If there's one thing you should know about Miami, then it should be that everybody loves their cafecito. So much so that 3.05pm (305 is Miami's area code) is official cafecito time in Miami! How's that for coffee culture?
It's that love for (and exposure to) coffee that resulted in me finally starting my own coffee business on my 40th birthday.
What to expect from American Way Blog?
For this first blog post I want to give you an idea of what you can expect to see here at American Way Blog. This space will be a bit of all things coffee - educational coffee posts, reviews of coffee roasts, new coffee discoveries, coffee news, and occasionally we'll also have guest interviews to talk with fellow coffee lovers.
Coffee culture is really a thing, and the coffee community is strong. Over the last year alone, I have been in touch with so many different coffee roasters, coffee lovers, coffee bloggers, coffee podcast hosts, and it's been so incredibly refreshing to connect with so many like-minded people that I decided to share the love and start this blog. We will post at least once a week, so that you're always in the know of what's happening in the exciting world of coffee lovers.
What else is coming?
We are constantly at new coffee ideas to share with the community. New coffee roasts are added regularly, and we also partnered with an incredible company to produce our American Way Apparel line, where you can find some really cool T-shirts, mugs, tumblers, phone cases, and so much more!
To stay up to date with the latest news, you can always check out our blog, the news & announcements section on the website, or our social media channels. The best way to make sure you don't miss out on anything is definitely to subscribe for the American Way Blog in your inbox!
