Her parents started Alakef Coffee Roasters in Duluth in the early 90s and for the past few years Alyza Bohbot has been adding her own flare to the company with the addition of her socially responsible City Girl Coffee brand.
“I had an idea in my head about how I wanted it to look and feel and resonate. ... I said I want to call it City Girl Coffee and I want it to be pink and yellow and just bright and vibrant and super young and feminine and fun.”
Her “unapologetically feminine” brand is sourced from women-owned or managed farms from all over the world and a portion of every sale goes back to the organizations that help support those women. Hear Alyza talk about her mission, how she got here, and what plans lie ahead for both brands.
