WHO WE ARE
Rebecca Grossman and Lucas Smith started ILSE Coffee in 2019, naming it after Lucas' grandmother.
ILSE Coffee is our combined mission to help people experience great things. We have a strong love and passion for quality coffee and are looking forward to sharing it with others.
We like coffees that are naturally sweet and delicious; coffees that clearly reflect where they're from. We describe this as "true".
During our sourcing process we particularly look for bright, fun, vibrant coffees, while at the same time trying to do what we can to add value to the supply chain. To us this means being as transparent as we possibly can.
We're excited to grow! - and we want our producing partners to grow with us.
We are in the process of opening a roastery and market in our local community of Westport, CT.
