Anyone who has had the pleasure of meeting Denny Robbins in person knows that he is a curious, yet harmonious, mix of Chuck Yeager, Mark Twain, and Andy Rooney - all wrapped in a coffee connoisseur's body. Priscilla on the other hand is the sweet, yet delightfullly firm, Queen Bee that never takes her eye off the ball - unless, of course, Burundi Bourbon is in the room.
These two people are the reason The Captain's Coffee exists. It was their idea, their dream, and they have worked hard and long to make it work.
Today, August 27, 2012, they officially handed that dream off to me and my wife Heather. As Isaac Newton famously said, "If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants." Heather and I are sincerely grateful to Denny and Priscilla for teaching us so much about life and coffee, not to mention this fortuitous opportunity. If we take this company further, it is only because we stand on their shoulders.
What I know of coffee, began with Denny Robbins. His affection for the drink, the industry, and the history is contagious and I have certainly caught the disease. But life is more than coffee (don't tell) and so I am all the more grateful for the conversations over a fine cup of joe while pretending to bag and ship orders in the mornings. As we all know, the work goes by faster, but progress is slower, when you are working with friends. Priscilla, I'm sorry that every time you walked in the room little progress was evident. (It was Denny's fault, I swear. I also blame the Yemen.)
To our customers, please know that the heart and soul of The Captain's Coffee will not change. We will continue to stubbornly only sell the stuff we love, and we will always keep our misfit band of customers the highest priority. We think that's just the right thing to do.
If you have any questions, concerns, worries, etc please feel free to contact us.
