Our Team at Thanksgiving Coffee Company

It takes a village to make Thanksgiving Coffee function as a unified whole. It is a dance where we all work together and make our mision a reality - to "enhance the well-being of all we touch, from coffee grower to coffee drinker."

Our co-founders, Joan and Paul Katzeff  (pictured above) - who are still with us, 50 years later - set the tone, the way, and the path for us to follow. They may have retired to the Board but there presence still permeates our culture.
