Coffee Roasting

Food For Thought - 5-10 Gabby Evans, Jumpy Monkey

May 10, 2019

Gabby Evans, Sales and Marketing Director from Jumpy Monkey Coffee sits down with Adrian on this week's episode. Jumpy Monkey is Coffee With a Cause and provides employment opportunities and job training for individuals with special needs. They also partner with many non-profit organizations (including Siouxland Public Media) to create specially designed coffee packaging for fundraising events.

Years ago Nisa Salmen fell in love with the white-chocolate raspberry mocha from a national coffee chain which set up a chain of events that led her to open a coffee shop of her own (and to start drinking real coffee.) Adrian welcomes Salmen, who just held the grand opening of that coffee shop, Hardline Coffee Co. last weekend. They discuss the burgeoning coffee culture here in Sioux City and starting a business downtown.
