Life & Work with Jorge Teixeira

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jorge Teixeira.

Jorge, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I used to work for corporate America in finance for 15 years and never felt that’s where I belong. I knew I was meant to have a business… while doing some research I came across this coffee shop and the first thing I thought of was my grandma coffee which is one of my earliest childhood memories during my time in the island of Fogo in Cape Verde. I knew I could make this dying coffee shop into a successful one even tho I never run any kind of business or knew much about coffee. I believe our success is combination of good customer service, good products and beautiful shop design.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
The biggest struggle is make it successful during pandemic. After making changes to the shop, I knew I had something special but couldn’t know for sure due to pandemic…

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
During my professional career, I’ve learned how to work as a team which came handy to manage my employees and make sure they work as a team.

How do you think about happiness?
To create something that people like. I love to hear how my customers like the shop and it’s a place where they can do work, chill with friends, etc.
