How We Helped

Access Ventures worked closely with the founder to develop a strategic plan to grow his operations. The business needed a production and training facility, an increase in roasting capacity, and key employees to take to the next step in growing their small business.

We helped renovate a new facility in the Shelby Park neighborhood in Louisville, KY that provides room for large-scale roasting and packaging, as well as a space to train cafe owners and baristas and hold cupping events. We also made an equity investment that provided the capital necessary to increase roasting capacity and hire the employees needed to grow the business.
