My name is Brie Roper, and for the last 15 and a half years I have worked for BIGGBY COFFEE in some capacity or another. I have served coffee as barista, run a store as a manager, supported our franchisees as a business coach, and now I help develop the people and culture of BIGGBY Nation.

In December of 2023 I was offered the opportunity of a coffee lady’s lifetime: A trip with One BIGG Island in Space to visit the people who produce our coffee. A chance to walk with them on their farms, hear their plans for the future, see their families and neighbors, and sit down with them for lunch.
