American entrepreneurs and their employees are fueled by millions of cups of coffee each day, but how does that java make its way into the states?
Danny O’Neill, founder of The Roasterie in Kansas City spoke at the Park University School of Business this morning, discussing how he started and runs his business. He also gave an overview of how coffee beans from around the globe make their way to American coffee shops and homes. All of the world’s coffee is grown between the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn — an area known as “the coffee belt.”
O’Neill is an active alumnus of Park University, and even sits on the school’s Board of Trustees.
