Such A Blessing 

A mini shoot with Billy Schiel, Founder. Lead Roaster. Beverage Maven. Coffeeologist, Righteous Bros. Coffee 

Not only has he stirred up a passion for people and those roasty toasty beans, but tells a humbling story of how we got to where he is. I have a hunch you will be seeing a lot more of him, along with his coffee. I got to try a cup o' Righteous and have to admit. . . I drank it BLACK! This never happens! Check out his website

His story unfolds here.

What do you do?

I roast and sell specialty coffee under the name of Righteous Bros. Coffee. Other than that I swim with my 4 kiddos and love my gorgeous wife. I preach the Gospel of Grace in my local church, Veritas. 

What is your passion?

People are my passion. Coffee is a means to connect with more people.

How did you get here?

That's a great question! I can only explain it by God's Grace. He has gifted me with the ability to roast great coffee and connect it with people. It really is baffling!

Advice to business owners and entrepreneurs?

Don't let the fear of failure hold you back from pursuing opportunities. There is no such thing as failure when you're giving all you have to an endeavor. Learn to redefine "success".

Favorite cup of joe?

Righteous Bros. Bella Carmona Guatemala on a V60 pour over.

Favorite food with your cup of joe?

A block of Tejas Chocolate.

What is the latest and greatest with Righteous Bros.? 

We're looking forward to a strong Fall calendar of events and festivals. We're also stoked on our 12oz bottles of ready to drink NITRO Cold Brew. We look to get this into the specialty grocery store channels soon.
