Boasting an impressive two-decade long career in the restaurant industry, Steve was eager to pivot his life in a new direction. He yearned for a slower pace that would allow him to cherish more moments with his family, while also fulfilling his professional aspirations. The rapidly growing gourmet coffee industry presented itself as an intriguing prospect.
However, life threw a wrench in his plans when his wife, Cindy, was diagnosed with cancer. Steve spent half a year devotedly caring for her. Despite the heartbreak of losing Cindy to this relentless disease, her resilience and spirit continued to inspire. These characteristics fueled Steve to relentlessly chase his dreams.
In a parallel narrative, Ann, a homemaker for years, was wrestling with her own hardship as her husband, Mac, was diagnosed with cancer. Tragically, Mac’s battle mirrored Cindy’s.
Already familiar through the friendship shared between Cindy and Ann, Steve and Ann found solace in one another. Their shared grief and support for each other wove into a beautiful love story that they believe was destined to be told. After seventeen years as a couple, they are now the heart of a vibrant blended family, with two sons, a daughter, and four endearing grandchildren.
Every day, Steve and Ann are committed to the coffee world, working side by side in the creation of exceptional coffees at Carolina Coffee Company. They harbor a deep-seated passion for their craft and view their customers as an extension of their family. Driven by their love for what they do, they persistently work to offer new coffee experiences, delivering to their customers the ultimate 'Sipping Pleasure'.
