We are Stuart and Sarah Kilgus. I (Stuart) am an Industrial Engineer, and Sarah is a wedding photographer. Aspyn is our 1-year old daughter, who we adore.
Sarah and I got married in the Spring of 2016. She from the east coast, and I from the mid-west, met each other in Ohio, through mutual friends in our church. I had moved there for my first engineering job, and Sarah to work as a nanny for a foster family. Throughout the summer we became friends, and that friendship grew. Eventually, we felt that God was leading us to get married, so we put our trust in Him, as is our practice, and what a wonderful journey it has been!
We love to travel the world and adventure together, and we have always dreamed of owning our own business to add to this adventure. Thus was born our vision: A Traveling coffee business!
Sarah and I both have active careers and during wedding season, Sarah is booked solid with events, editing photos and meeting with clients. We also have a very old house that needs immense work, and our baby girl keeps us on our toes. There are many challenges that stand in our way to this successful business, but this is our dream, our True Adventure.
Beyond serving amazing coffee, we want to positively impact the lives of those around us. This through our business practices, but also through our story, and our Legacy.
We believe that everyone has an adventure to live. I don’t mean that everyone is going to climb Everest, or backpack through the Serengeti (necessarily). But everyone’s life is already an adventure, that is worth living. True life, is the True Adventure!
Maybe you have a dream, but need a little push. Maybe you are a pursuing a dream already, and could use support, or perhaps you are living your dream and have sage wisdom to share. This is why we have decided to chronicle our journey, so we can share experiences together.
We also hope to provide some insight to those who want to start their own business, by telling the story of our own experiences.
Through our story we will be sharing our step-by-step journey of this pursuit. We have never done this before, so this story is raw, untested and unfiltered, so who knows what will happen!
I would love constructive feedback from experts, encouragement by fellow start-ups, and maybe even to inspire someone to pursue their dream.
This is our adventure, and I want you to come with us!
Live life as it was meant to be lived. True life IS the “True Adventure”, embrace it with its challenges, joys and curve-balls. I want to spend time with wife and family, be creative, honor God, make a difference. Travel and explore, build good relationships.
Improve the lives of people around us. From our suppliers, to our customers, may our interactions leave people better off. From supporting the economies of impoverished nations in Africa, to bringing hope and inspiration to the hurting in America.
Present the highest-quality coffee as it was truly designed to be. Showcase its incredible variety of flavors and characteristics to produce a coffee experience that most have never encountered.
Everyone has an adventure to live.
Whether it braving the high seas, or raising a house of kids, everyone’s adventure is unique, and worth living fully. Whatever quest stands before you, seize it, enjoy it.
As with coffee, what most know as mundane and bitter, can be vibrant, full of life and contain unexpected experiences.
