A local coffee roaster seeps away into one of the fastest growing specialty coffee companies.
Civilized Coffee from Jacksonville is creating a new line of organic Colombian coffee with the owner of Dallas Mavericks and the investor of the Shark Tank TV show, Mark Cuban, and his company “Three Commas”.
Mark Patterson is the founder and president of Civilized Coffee, which he named for the custom of civilized conversation.
Patterson told First Coast Connect host Melissa Ross on Tuesday that working with Cuban will bring even more awareness to their product.
“Our company has grown by three to four hundred percent since 2017. We’ve sold to every state in the country, Mexico, Canada, the Caribbean, Europe and the Middle East (Middle East military facilities) so we’re growing fast, “he said.
Decaf is one of the company’s small batch roasts. They can be found at CivilizedCoffee.com.
The full Patterson interview is available Tuesday on First Coast Connect with Melissa Ross. It will be published in WJCT News 89.9 on Tuesday at 8 p.m.
