Evans Brothers Coffee, located in Sandpoint, Idaho, was started by two brothers, Rick and Randy Evans in the summer of 2009. They developed their vision for this family-owned business over long lift rides at Schweitzer Mountain Resort's Chair 6 in the winter of 2008/2009. Randy had worked in specialty coffee for a decade, while Rick had a background in business development, sales, and marketing.
Their intention with the business would be to create a long-lasting company that would add tremendous value to their local communities, and that would strive to connect people with the story of the coffee itself. They would create special experiences around a cup of coffee, showcasing the producers and importers that do so much of the real work. Traveling to origin and connecting at this level has always been important.
Equally as important to the brothers has been creating a place for true connection in their communities, to inspire people and provide a sense of place.
