Anyone who has met Chris Stites knows his mission in life is to spread joy.
After a chance visit to a Hawaiian coffee farm, Chris realized that the best way for him to spread that joy just might be through serving people a good cup of coffee. Returning home to Oakland, his newly ignited passion led him to expand his farm to cup knowledge even further. The stories of the people behind each bean stuck with him and, eventually, he purchased a small roaster to begin spinning his own coffee narrative. Within the year, Chris founded Slojoy Coffee Roasters, a home for his two callings in life: coffee & community.
