Angelino’s was founded by Kirk Bedrossian in 2002. His passion for coffee began at a young age as he watched his father run his coffee processing business. In 1998, Kirk joined his father on a coffee sourcing trip to Costa Rica and that’s where his love for all things coffee ignited. What was supposed to be a week-long vacation turned into 4 years of traveling alongside his father to coffee regions all around the world. Together, they trekked the jungles of Africa, backpacked through the villages of Indonesia, and voyaged across the Amazon – all in search of finding the best coffees on earth. Kirk fell in love with the enriching lifestyle that the coffee business brought. With every new adventure, his pure joy and affinity for meeting new people and sharing in their cultures, lifestyle and traditions grew. By 2002, his vision had sparked – he wanted to share the world with others through a cup of coffee. Kirk returned to Los Angeles and Angelino’s Coffee was born.
