May 26, 2016, the day Laura Rogers came to work at the family business.
She is the first of the 3rd generation of Rogers family members to take up the San Francisco Bay Coffee Co. mantle; Laura has landed on the Big Island of Hawaii to begin her new life as manager of our Kona Coffee Bar.
A recent graduate of University of Arizona, Laura has been working towards this day since birth.
Travelling with her family to farmer's meetings in remote growing regions like, Panama.
And Guatemala, where she learned the art of grafting coffee saplings.
And now, Kona HI. where she will be running our first coffee bar and spreading caffeinated joy to tourists and locals alike.
Congratulations, Laura. This is a big day and you are going to do great!
