Stephen's Coffee Inc. began with our very first mobile coffee service hosted by Noons Creek Hatchery back in December of 2018.
From here, I quickly learned that there was a great opportunity to share awesome coffee supplied by Spirit Bear Coffee Company. In Early 2019, I had incorporated Stephen's Coffee and developed a business plan where I would provide;
Mobile Coffee Service,
Retail Sales of Spirit Bear Coffee Beans,
Wholesale opportunities for small office and small business such as other mobile coffee service providers, caterers and small, family owned restaurants.
Spirit Bear Coffee Company agreed to bring me aboard as an Authorized Distributor and I act as their Mobile Coffee Specialist, attending various conferences and setting up coffee equipment to provide fresh brewed coffee to attendees.
For 2023, I am excited to announce that I have several events booked for mobile coffee service at. As well, I now have the goal to save up and purchase either a coffee service trailer or a food truck. Should food service become an option, my Wife and I have discussed the opportunity to create a fusion menu of foods from Traditional Indigenous Cuisine and Traditional Cham/Vietnamese Cuisine. A very exciting opportunity for sure.
So please stay tuned.....
Exciting announcements are sure to come soon.
My Ancestral Name is Xem-Tu-Mus
I am the oldest of three boys.
My late mom is From Kwikwetlem First Nation, located in Coquitlam, BC. My late father is of Irish Decent.
Since the age of a young teen, I have always had an Entrepreneurial Spirit, delivering newspapers and working at local swap meets (this was a big thing when I was young).
I endured the many life lessons that this journey has offered me. Working at many job opportunities while I was young, looking for where my skills were strong at and of course learning where I can enhance my skills.
I sought out my extended family members who immediately took me under their wings and continue to teach me our Cultural and Spiritual Ways.
I aspire to see my Community of Kwikwetlem become a stronger Nation by bringing home the lessons I continue to learn and sharing all the positive energy that is shared with me.
Future plans I would love to accomplish include starting up a canoe society to provide the Youth of Kwikwetlem as well as youth of the Tri-Cities an opportunity to participate with race canoes and to begin the journey of cultural sharing.
