As you get your morning caffeine fix, you may occasionally wonder how those coffee beans got from a tree to your cup.
And if you’re getting your morning joe at a local coffee shop, you may be drinking locally roasted coffee.
Cuvee Coffee’s roastery has been in Spicewood since 2009. When Mike McKim first started the company in 1998, he says he was lucky to ship a thousand pounds of coffee per week.
Now he moves that amount per day.
McKim said business was tough the first decade, but now it’s growing 30 to 50 percent per year.
“A lot of that here in Texas is due to a couple of coffee houses who just started doing things different than all other coffee houses,” McKim said.
Jo's, Cafe Medici and Thunderbird all serve Cuvee Coffee.
McKim says even though some people knock the price of Starbucks coffee, the national chain paved the way for smaller companies like Cuvee.
