Coffee, Y'all

Southern Makers Series: Spotlight on Cheri Leavy and Whitney Long, founders of the Southern Coterie

We have a new series on the blog this week: the Southern Makers Series. This series highlights creative entrepreneurs—the best and brightest in the South. This week, my blog guests are Cheri Leavy and Whitney Long, founders of the Southern Coterie and creators of the Southern C Summit. The Southern C Summit is tailored to offer community, connection, and collaboration amongst top names in media, branding and blogging. King Bean is a proud sponsor of the Southern C Summit, which will be held February 6-8 on Sea Island, Ga. 

The Biscuit Queen + King Bean

Celebrating our partnership with Callie’s Biscuits. A few years ago, Carrie Morey approached us to create a proprietary coffee blend for her brand, Callie’s Biscuits. Carrie knew exactly the coffee she envisioned pairing with her biscuits. She asked us to create a rich, roasted coffee that brewed a fantastic cup of French press—her favorite brew method. We worked with her to achieve the coffee that she wanted to sell alongside her famous biscuits. The result? Callie’s Biscuit Blend.

Welcome to the King Bean blog!

Coffee, Y’all shares everything we love about coffee in the South. Based in Charleston and the surrounding lowcountry, we showcase our fantastic culinary scene, our thriving King Bean community and of course, talk about all things coffee! We hope you enjoy it.
