We wish to express our sincere appreciation to our guests and team members this past Monday night, February 24, 2014, as they came out to visit us at our original location on Demun. This was a big event for us as we kicked off an exciting year for our 20th Anniversary and unveiled our new branding. Our Co-founder, Howard Lerner, was there to be a part of the celebration and had some good stories to share with everyone from the first days at Demun Kaldi’s. Guests took part in hands-on brewing demos, food and drinks, coffee presentations, and an all-star brewing competition. The whole evening was truly awesome. We were able to represent in one night, what we strive to do each and everyday. We strive to offer the highest level of service and coffee to our guests. We even had customers come in who have been regulars since the café first opened. When this company was founded in 1994, we could hardly imagine our growth to where we are today and could not have come this far without the loyal support of our customers and hard work of each member of the Kaldi’s team.
We are even more excited about the next twenty years. The first twenty years were about evolving this industry. We now have the resources to travel the world and work with farmers on bigger opportunities to continue to build on what we are truly passionate about, sourcing some of the best coffees in the world while improving the coffee farms and communities from where we buy coffee.
Today, we aspire to share these coffee experiences with our customers. The next twenty years, our travel will enable us to create many more ways to capture and communicate new kinds of experiences to our customers as we impact the countries we source our coffees from and build relationships with the farmers.
It's been amazing to share what we have learned thus far in an impactful industry we are helping to shape. We are so grateful for each and every one of you. We are looking forward to serving up the best coffees in the world and making memorable coffee experiences for the next twenty years!
Cheers and thank you.
