What is Copper Cow Coffee?
Copper Cow Coffee is an upscale coffee company bringing delicious Vietnamese coffee to your home with ease. But Copper Cow Coffee is much more than just delicious brews, they are a woman-owned business with a sustainable model using 100% natural and organic beans and flavors and also providing source farmers with twice the pay for their extraordinarily quality products.
Vietnamese coffee? Yes, the traditional variant is a strong, slightly bitter Vietnamese bean brewed by the pour-over method and mixed with sweetened condensed milk creamer.
Who Owns Copper Cow Coffee?
Copper Cow Coffee was started in Debbie Wei Mullin’s sister’s garage in 2016. Not an average Coffee capitalist and not your average American coffee experience. Debbie sought to “introduce Vietnamese flavors to American homes”. She set out to creatively share her “secret”.
Debbie Wei Mullin left her role at the World Bank in 2016 to focus on her personal passion of Vietnamese coffee. In her former position, she helped to fight against poverty with one of the largest development banks in the world. She felt a change to entrepreneurship was a better fit at that time. She happily and quickly turned her fun, creative spirit into a luxurious coffee enterprise. Her financial and business prowess aided her creative endeavors.
It’s not just the taste of the coffee that drives sales. The convenient and efficient packaging of the Vietnamese lattes are one of the finest on the market. The business started with a direct to retail model but has since grown to add other flavors of coffees and subscription services to the pour-over set bundles. Once the product and company were featured on the TV show Shark Tank, the brand only figures to sustainably grow more and more.
