Faith Based Small Business Summit Panelist News
Nathan Westwick, owner of Wild Goose Coffee Roasters and one of the panelists at last year’s Faith Based Small Business Summit, recently announced that his Redlands-based warehouse facility now has a dedicated tasting room.
“We are still a wholesaler, but we have had enough people say, ‘Can we come visit you and buy a bag of coffee for ourselves?’ So we put a display and tasting space together,” Westwick said.
Wild Goose Coffee is more than a coffee roasting company; it’s a company with a unique mission and the tagline says it all: “World Class Coffee with a World Wide Conscience.” For every pound of coffee Wild Goose sells, the company donates one pound of food to local food banks. Since 2008, the company has donated nearly 700,000 pounds of food. Westwick, a former teacher, started the coffee business so that he could give back to the community and do something that involved his passion for coffee and helping others.
He is certainly helping others and many coffee lovers can now get a taste and experience the Wild Goose brand at 1670 Sessums Drive in Redlands. Depending on its growth, the company may one day open a storefront location. Who knows where the wild goose will land.
