How it all started

 

Colibri Mountain Coffee cofounders met through Herbie and Kelsey Goldstein at their wedding

Jimmy met Maria at his best friend’s wedding, and in a matter of weeks, he decided to sell his car and most of his belongings in Albany, NY to help Colibri Mountain Coffee break ground in San Antonio, TX. Maria and Jimmy are now roommates and run the company out of the Colibri Headquarters 24/7.
