City Girl Coffee Company is a sustainable and responsible coffee company who is working to bring awareness and equality to the women of the coffee industry. They source as much of their coffee as possible from small, women owned or managed farms and co-operatives, and give a portion of every sale back to the organizations that support the success of women in their country of origin.
In 1990, Nessim and Deborah Bohbot found themselves working in Duluth, Minnesota, and searching for the perfect cup of coffee. Finding specialty coffee lacking in that area, Nessim began roasting his own beans in his kitchen. The love of this craft triggered their desire to start a roasting company, called Alakef Coffee Roasters, in the basement of an old school building by the lake shores in Duluth.
With warmer weather (and retirement) on their mind, Nessim and Deborah's daughter, Alyza, took sole ownership of the family business in January 2015. As Alyza began to become involved in women's organizations within the coffee industry, she set out to create a coffee brand that was not only cute, girl-tastic and roasted just right, but was sourced responsibly and made a difference. And so, City Girl Coffee was born in November 2015.
