Our passion drives us

Passion for Quality

By focusing on specialty grade coffees and ensuring an ethical supply chain, we're able to bring high quality coffees to people who may not otherwise get to experience the best these products can be.

We constantly hear feedback from our customers like "This is the only coffee I can drink black." Even when our customers don't know the ins and outs of specialty grade coffee, they can tell something is different when they taste it.

We order the best ingredients we can and handle them the best way we know how resulting is the richest flavors that leave a mark.

Where we can, we also source products from small and independent businesses, creators, and artists.

Passion to Do More Good

Our founders believe that capitalism can be a force for good in the world if leaders focus on answering to more than just shareholder interest. "With only a slight change to a company's purpose from wall street values to main street values, we can be part of solving the problems in the world instead of being part of them."

One way we do this is through our partnership with The Feya Foundation, a non-profit organization that works to offset hunger and inequality by connecting people and resources. Akira is also a member of the Do More Good Movement which helps small businesses build purpose into their model to ensure all stakeholders, not just shareholders, are part of a company's mission.

Complete Operational Partner

When we partner, we're looking for someone who can bring an audience to something they are passionate about (coffee!). From there, we build the complete business with them from branding, product development, operations, marketing, and fulfillment. At Akira, we don't just setup a website and hope the partner generates some orders, we actively participate in growing the brand over the long term.

We are truly a full-service e-commerce company also managing social platforms for each brand, providing superior customer support and genuine interaction with each influencer's audience.

Organic Sales Model

Our brands are based on real connections that come from deep fandom. When an influencer brings their audience to the brand we create with them, we have a responsibility to live up to the reputation and connection the creator has built with their audience over many years. When we do that, our coffee brands develop uniquely strong connections and engagement turning an audience into customers, into fans. Our brands succeed primarily based on organic traffic and real long term fans of what we're doing.
