Peaks Coffee Company
1200 east genesee street, syracuse, ny 13210
They’re on a mission to meet people in their peaks and valleys, with specialty coffee as their catalyst to build relationships and impact others. Their core belief that life is about enjoying the peaks and enduring the valleys. It was 2014 when Kelsey and Sam began to dream of creating a space to meet people in their peaks and valleys. Out of this dream came Peaks Coffee Co., born in October of 2015 on a cast iron skillet in snowy Syracuse, N.Y. They began purchasing small lots of direct trade and sustainably sourced coffees from their favorite growing countries, to roast, create memories and build community. Since 2015 they have grown to their first retail presence in Syracuse, a small team of incredible baristas, one roaster, and wholesale partnerships around the states. Their goal in both retail and wholesale is to meet customers wherever they are, with kindness and built on a desire to help them endure the valleys. Coffee is just the catalyst that they use to meet this goal, together with creating a safe space where all feel welcome.
Kelsey and Sam have suffered from anxiety and depression for the entirety of their lives, and one of their biggest inspirations once told them that "life is about enjoying the peaks and enduring the valleys". They are peaks, built in the valleys.
