Hello! Welcome to Kitty Town Coffee. Kitty Town Coffee was founded by me, Zanetta Kok. I wanted to roast coffee the first time I saw a shiny red coffee roaster sitting in a coffee shop window when I was just 15-years-old. I got the chance after graduating from college when I bought my first popcorn popper from the 1970's off of eBay--the ideal type for roasting coffee.
The inspiration for the cat theme was my first cat, Sydney. She was a stray who came to my doorstep one cold night in October of 2014. The two of us were inseparable right away. As a stray she needed a home, but what I didn't realize at the time was that I needed her more. She taught me to take care of myself by making sure that that I took time to be present with her. Her love kept me sane and gave me the strength to accomplish my personal goals.
In 2016 we adopted Albert. Sydney taught him everything she knew and the two of them completely took over the house. That's when our house got the nickname, Kitty Town. I was starting to make plans to turn my coffee roasting hobby into a business when Sydney passed away suddenly. When I lost her I knew that I had to start Kitty Town for her. Part of our mission as a company is to find ways to partner with and support the efforts of local animal shelters to make sure that special kitties like Sydney can always find a home.
At Kitty Town, we believe in supporting our community and doing things right. We pride ourselves in being a brand that is easy to connect with. We create high quality coffees and offer them at a price that you can afford, because that's the right thing to do.
