Small Business, Big Heart
During the past year, small businesses have been tested like never before. Sadly, many of America’s small businesses have been forced to close their doors, however, despite the hardships, many have not only survived – but thrived – through innovation, perseverance, and community support. Talk about pivoting! This week marks Small Business Week, a time to celebrate small businesses around the country that represent the American entrepreneurial spirit.
Central Florida small businesses have survived lockdowns and an uncertain future, but this didn’t stop them from giving back to local healthcare workers, first responders and families in need. Thanks to incredible ingenuity, resilience, and loyal customer support, many are now slowly getting back on their feet. Let’s hear it for Central Florida’s small businesses!
Metro Orlando Leads the Nation in Small Business Owners
Small businesses account for half of America’s workforce. And according to AdvisorSmith.com, the Orlando metro area ranks 10th among large U.S. cities boasting the largest number of small business owners. Javatino, Orlando’s original Certified Organic artisan coffee roaster, is proud to be among those local small businesses that contribute to our growing and vibrant community.
The Javatino Story
Since 2012, Javatino has been serving customers throughout Central Florida and beyond with a unique selection of Single Origin coffees sourced from coffee-growing regions around the world. It all began when founder Jose Estorino had the vision to create a coffee company that introduced customers to a healthy and delicious tasting product that represented a variety of flavors and coffee-growing traditions unique to their countries of origin.
Jose’s past career as a tourism marketing executive had taken him to more than 75 countries where he was struck by the common thread of cultural traditions that brought people together over a cup of coffee.
And the Rest is History
In 2012, the first beans were roasted, and by 2019, Javatino was designated a USDA Certified Organic coffee roaster, further solidifying its position as one of Central Florida’s most sought-after coffee products. We import from farmers in every major growing region of the world, including Central and South America, Indonesia and Africa, to bring you the highest quality and best-tasting coffee.
Just as our customers stand behind us, Javatino supports our farmers through the purchase of Fair Trade Certified™ products that promote a global effort to provide fair wages and benefits for coffee farmers, their families, and local communities. Whether cultivated from the highest elevations of the Andes Mountains, or from the rich volcanic soil of Java, our coffee transports customers to a unique flavorful experience each time they sip our coffee.
