Secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Tourism Stephanie Klett visited Door County Coffee & Tea Co. on June 26 to help them kick-off their 25th year in business. Like Klett, Door County Coffee president and founder Vicki Wilson understands the importance of providing opportunities to live and work in a place like Door County. What started as a desire for Wilson and her family to find a way to make Door County home has developed into one of the premiere coffee roasting companies in the Midwest. Opening with a small, but ambitious team of two who handled the roasting, packaging and selling, Door County Coffee is now a company of 53 employees working in very specialized areas.
“In the beginning it was about a dream for me and my family to find a way live in Door County. The more research we did, the more we realized there was a real need for specialty coffee in our area,” said Wilson. “This isn’t my story anymore…it’s the story of the 53 wonderful people who work here. It’s about their work ethic, passion for what they do, love of our customers and belief in our product.”
Door County Coffee will have many ways for customers and the community to celebrate with them throughout the remainder of the year, including new limited edition anniversary coffees, contests and opportunities to save, both in the Café and at doorcountycoffee.com.
