EAST DURHAM — There is no stopping young entrepreneurs Justice and Maximum Leman. The Windham brothers, ages 15 1/2 and 14, started their BEAN WISE coffee business in 2010 and continue to grow their company, recently partnering with Bernadette Gavin, owner of the Irish Tea Shop in East Durham.Go here for the full story.
“Although we’re known for tea, we also provide coffee to accompany our fresh-baked and sought-after scones,” she said in a press release. “We’ve been looking for just the right coffee company to partner with and once we tasted BEAN WISE, we knew we found a match.”
She later said that she and her husband have stayed at the Albergo Allegria Bed & Breakfast Hotel in Windham, where they have also tasted the coffee. The hotel is owned by the brothers’ parents, Marianna and Leslie.
“We wanted an upscale local coffee and it seemed like the perfect fit,” Gavin said. “We also love the fact they are young entrepreneurs, which is what we need in Greene County.”
