Jeff Brooks is the co-founder of Giv Coffee with his wife Emily. After visiting friends in Kentucky who owned a coffee company with a philanthropic puropose, they were inspired that great coffee could be tied to a bigger cause and giving back. Jeff, a coffee connoisseur himself, started roasting his own beans and in the fall of 2011 Giv Coffee was born.
