Daily Inspiration: Meet Jessica Santana

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jessica Santana.

Hi Jessica, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
Jesse’s Grind journey began May 2020, like everyone else in the world, I was affected by the pandemic, laid off from my full-time job & had a lot of spare time, not knowing what was next, I was gifted an espresso machine by my wife. A long-time dream of mine had been to open a coffee shop.

With so much spare time, a new espresso machine and a lot of recipes in my head I got to work. I posted my new journey on Instagram and was surprised by the amount of support from my family and friends.

We are literally taking it one cup of coffee at a time. We are now catering private events, weddings, pop-ups and festivals.

Our goal is to open a coffee shop in our community.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The road has not been easy, we currently struggle keeping up with the demand. Our hope is to open a brick and mortar to have the space to continue creating.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
Growing up in a Mexican home, we take the traditional cafecito into our grind.

On our menu, you can find some of our favorites like cafe de olla, Dirty Horchata (espresso and Horchata), abuelita latte & Mazapán latte along with some staple flavors like caramel latte, Hazelnut latte and vanilla latte.
