IN NORTH CAROLINA
After visiting Thailand and Costa Rica, Daniel became enthralled with the global coffee culture. He saw well-cared coffee farms, roasting facilities, and the various ways coffee is brewed and served worldwide. Daniel realized he wanted to be a part of the coffee community. Daniel began roasting as a hobby in the garage. A year later, in 2017, AKW launched, at the time being the only local coffee roaster. AKW coffee has been shipped and enjoyed in Mexico, Canada, England, Scotland, and Moldova.
