Ginger Beard Coffee

Ginger Beard Coffee's story didn't start like most coffee shops, with visions of corporate profit. It all started with a couple of guys and a crazy idea. The idea was a simple one: what if their love of coffee and of people could combine in a new way. What if we could bring new life to an old space?

So they quit the daily grind of corporate life to start serving coffee here in Tampa's Channelside District. And not just any coffee, but Nitro Cold Brew, and named after the ginger growing on their faces.

The Blind Tiger is a speakeasy-inspired lifestyle brand for those who desire quality and richness in the small pleasures of life.

Buddy Brew Coffee at Hyde Park Village

Inspired and impassioned, they began roasting their own. One Christmas, as they gave bags of their home-roasted beans to friends, they jokingly created a label for the brew, named after their dog Buddy. People fell in love with the coffee, the name stuck, and Buddy Brew Coffee was born. They bought a Diedrich IR-7 commercial roaster and started roasting right out of their garage with an online business. They opened their first roastery/coffee bar in Tampa, Florida in 2010.
