What started out as a friendship between two couples has quickly grown into a bond between two families. The Fetters and Goncalves families met in the fall of 2017 when the Goncalves' moved to Williamsburg, VA. The two couples (no kids yet at the time!) quickly bonded over their love of coffee and football (soccer). The rest is history.
2020 will be a year that is remembered for many reasons. For us, one of those reasons is the creation of Flying Kite Coffee. Founded in September of 2020, our families came together to share the passion for not only a good cup of coffee, but also for making connections with, and serving our community. What better way to do that than by roasting coffee!
Flying Kite Coffee exists to provide high-quality coffee that values relationships over profits.
This is why we will strive to be a welcoming, accepting, and inviting business where people feel seen and valued at all levels of the coffee process. From the farmers who grow the beans, to the workers who pick and process them, to the importers, to our roasters, and to all of our customers. We believe that everyone deserves a good cup of coffee.
That is why we are committed to donating a percentage of our total revenue in our first year to charities and non-profit organizations who do amazing work locally and nationally.
Why 'Flying Kite'?
We wanted something that would capture the essence and joy of childhood. Both of our families have little ones that we hope will enter into this coffee journey with us when they are older. We also wanted a symbol that would remind us of warm summer days on the beach when a nice breeze brushes past your face. We love the freedom that a kite represents and the idea that we can all be connected to something higher than ourselves.
Here at Flying Kite Coffee, we believe that we all benefit when we take a moment to realize just how connected we really are.
Each sip connecting you to the country that it came from.
Each bag giving back to our community.
Each person in the process from farm to cup being valued.
Whether you are just trying to get through your day, fuel your passion, or catch up with a friend, let's drink good coffee and do great things together.
