Welcome to Kaffe 117

At Kaffe 117, we believe every cup of coffee tells a story – a story of craftsmanship, dedication, and the love for the perfect brew. Our journey began with a simple yet profound idea: to bring exceptional coffee experiences to every coffee lover's daily ritual.

Our Origin:

Founded in 2023, Kaffe 117 was born from a passion for great coffee. Our founder, David Tanderup, has been on a mission: to experience the finest cups of coffee the world has to offer. As a former US Army helicopter pilot, Dave is, admittedly, a bit "extra" about his coffee. If we hired a good marketing manager, they'd probably brand him "passionate." Life is too short to drink bad coffee. And at Kaffe 117, we believe great coffee doesn't have to be complicated. 

Community and Connection:

Coffee is more than a beverage; it's a connector. Kaffe 117 is proud to be a part of the communities we serve. We believe in fostering connections, whether sharing stories over a cup of coffee or supporting local initiatives that make a positive impact.

Mission and Vision:

At Kaffe 117, we’ve made it our mission to embody the instructions in Isaiah 1:17: “Learn to do what is good. Seek justice. Correct the oppressor. Defend the rights of the fatherless. Plead the widow’s cause.”
By purchasing our coffee, you champion this mission.
We have committed 20% of our profits to local community and international relief organizations, but that’s just the start. Every exquisite cup of coffee you enjoy makes a difference for friends and neighbors you haven’t met yet in their hour of crisis.
Whether it’s a family needing relief from a natural disaster, a person experiencing homelessness, or a mother seeking refuge for herself and her child, our coffee community cultivates a culture of care, ensuring that the warmth of every sip is felt by those who need it most.

Kaffe 117. Coffee that makes a difference.
