Every roast at Emiliani Coffee is dedicated to someone we see as a hero who fought for and embodied the same love for kids that we see in St. Jerome. The hope is that through the sharing of their stories, we will all learn from and be inspired by them.
Our current blends are dedicated to:
Mexican Light Roast: Avivah Brown
Peru Medium Roast: George Dennehy
George's story is one that started in a Romanian orphanage after being born without arms, and continues today as a picture of success as a speaker and musician who tours the world sharing a story of inspiration, hope and overcoming challenges. To learn more about George and his family, click here.
Sumatra Dark Roast: Angela McQueen
Angela is a math and phy ed. teacher in the small town of Matoon where she threw herself at a student who began firing a semi-automatic weapon in the lunchroom; putting a stop to what could have been a devastating tragedy. While everyone who knows Angela emphasizes the way that she is never one to seek the limelight, her heroic acts and love for kids immediately thrust her into the public eye as an inspiration of what a life lived for others and what sacrificing one’s self for kids looks like.
