Stories for You

How do you take your coffee? Expresso, Latte, Bica, Pingado, Cappuccino, Cortado, Carajillo, Café con leche? I found interesting that coffee blends and the ways we name them around the world represent different languages, cultures, and heritages. 

So with so many coffee brands out there, how do you make your choice? Meet, not your everyday-coffee-brand! And, here’s why.

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style” ― Maya Angelou. When the About page starts a quote like that, you know you’re off to a great start! A good quote is an excellent way to infuse personality — it resonates with your beliefs, shows the owner’s vision on the brand’s personality, and how they want you to make you feel when working with them. In a nutshell: it tells their story.  

Connecting with an audience begins with piquing their fascination with your brand.  Get them sucked into your story and visuals so they can’t stop reading your website, page after page. Once you connect and nurturing it on your social media, for instance, and other brand touching points, sooner or later, they’ll buy from you. If engagement isn’t made within seconds of the first contact, readers click on something else and most probably never come back. Harsh, but true! Back to, the more you learn about them, the more you’re going to love them!’ story is simple: it was born from Eddie Corner vision, who has a passion for coffee and interior design. She took her love and combined with their business and branding know-how, and was born! 

Like all good businesses, has grown and evolved over the years, from a lovely brick and mortar coffee shop to an online store. She managed all of this while raising both kids and dogs, so brave! Eddie brought their life experiences into their brand and created an unforgettable experience for everyone that buys from them. The power of creative minds!

How does she manage to make that experience just so memorable? is more than just an online coffee shop, and more than just another interior design company, it takes aspects of both and comes up with a unique idea. You’re not buying just their coffee. Yes, the coffee is organic, local and tasty, but with, you’re buying the experience of sipping delicious coffee in a beautifully designed home. elevates the experience of drinking a regular coffee in the morning before dropping the kids off at school into something truly special. A comfortably designed home with pieces you love, the beautiful paint you look at while drinking the coffee, the cups and accessories you make the coffee. Isn’t it real world magic? 

Those experiences are priceless; we feel good, it feels right, we start the day inspired and relaxed, and want to keep that feeling for us and share it with everyone we connect with throughout the day.  By helping you source out small design pieces for your home decor, remake your whole house, or even host events, brings a spark to your everyday life. At the end of the day, life is about experiences; the ones we share with others,  they make us who we are.

So the next time you need a quick coffee fix at Starbucks, consider the local coffee shop down the road or the online business going against the grain and offering different alternatives. You can make a difference as a client, and the connection you establish is powerful and long lasting.

Think before making a decision, even if it’s a simple one, like buying coffee. What does the local company differently? Is it the coffee quality, the customer service, the air of warmth? Is their vision aligned with yours? Such as, do they provide environmental friendly coffee? Is this important to you too, caring and being part of the whole?  Define what’s important and what appeals to you, then get it. Helping people impacts our world in a big way; it makes the days and years to come more valuable and meaningful. And remember, meaningful doesn’t always mean big, sometimes the most significant, magical things come in the smallest of packages, like a piping hot, well-brewed cup of coffee.

Wishing you love, shine on!

XX, Olga
