30 Years Of Dedication - Hermie Hernandez

Hermie With New Cupping Spoon

Every so often an employees dedication and service shines through and this certainly is the case with our very own Hermie Hernandez. She has been with Rogers Family Company for 30 years and we were delighted to celebrate this occasion with Hermie and the rest of our team.  Hermie has been here since 1982 and in her time with us has become a member of our family.

Hermie started with Rogers back when we were just a small company with a staff of 9 people in Oakland CA. She started in the packing department and as the years progressed she moved through most of the jobs in production facility until she ended up in our Quality Control Department and is now considered an expert Cupper and an invaluable member of our QC Team.

Hermie says the top things that have changed over the past 30 years are the increase in product offerings, the size of the company and the growth of the Rogers Family kids into adults that now run the company.  She remembers watching the kids play in the warehouse not so long ago (it is amazing how time flies) and now they are are in offices and business meetings.

Happy 30th Anniversary Hermie!

    I recently purchased a box of your single serve San Francisco Rainforest Blend at BJ’s. It is an amazing coffee. I just had to go back and buy another box. I love the coffee and your whole business philosophy. Your treatment of your workers and the environment are what all businesses should aspire to. Sadly they don’t even come close. Thank you for the fine product AND corporate excellence. You have a life-time customer.

Keep up the good testimony ROGERS FAMILY you are both Blessed by God and a blessing to the world.

    I Had the opportunity to work for this amazing company back in the San Leandro facility in 2004 to 2009. While I was doing my college carrier, I used to go to school in the mornings and work for the Rogers Family as a Roaster in the afternoon shift. I have to say that this is an amazing family that cares for their employees and thanks to their kindness bonuses I was able to save money for my college career.
    I also had the pleasure to work with Hermie, what a solid, professional and ethical person she is, very respectful and very dedicated to her job, I would like to send my greetings to her and wish her many more years of success.
    My best blessings and gratitude to the Rogers Family and Hermie.
