BeanFruit Coffee Co.
Paul Bonds, Founder
BeanFruit Coffee Co. founder and owner, Paul Bonds, admits he wasn’t always a coffee lover. In fact, his interest in coffee didn’t start until 2008, when he read an article about specialty coffee. From there, he purchased a small commercial roaster, sold beans at farmers markets and worked his way up to where BeanFruit Coffee Co. is now — producing exquisite, single-origin coffees.
Mississippi Cold Drip
Cold Drip Coffee and Tea
Raymond Horn, Founder
As a child growing up in New Orleans, Raymond Horn had early memories of his mother brewing coffee concentrate in whiskey bottles. As an adult, he decided to make coffee concentrate a business of his own. Mississippi Cold Drip is the product of Raymond’s passion for coffee and drive to create a concentrate as good as the one he had as a kid.
Natchez Brewing Co.
Patrick & Lisa Miller, Cofounders
Made with love for local flavor and traditions, Natchez Brewing uses recipes and brews created by Patrick Miller, who co-owns the company and was born and raised in Natchez. Their beer is made with a true Southern drawl and the hospitality of the Deep South. His wife, Lisa Miller, is the other co-owner and used to own a successful dog-grooming business before Patrick introduced her to her new love of craft beer.
We Love Local
Loving our local growers, artisans, makers, entrepreneurs and producers is something that just comes, well, naturally. After all, our local community has been one of our most important ingredients — it's been that way since the doors opened to our very first store.
