"Bright Jenny is named after my wife, because without her, this company wouldn’t exist (she basically Jedi mind-tricked me into thinking I could run a business with zero experience, but that’s a story for another day). More than that, though, she is an exceptional woman. A sparkly person who swims through my veins like the brightest tasting notes rippling through a super luxe cup of coffee. She is the crisp apple zipping through a fine Guatemalan brew. She is my safest place and my greatest adventure. She is an unexpected donut on a Sunday morning. My muse. My purpose. My shiny penny. My bright Jenny. "
Bright Jenny started in 2015, on a home built roaster in a back yard shed in downtown Kelowna. In a city with limited specialty coffee options, we decided to take it upon ourselves to share our passion with the city we love. Our original mobile coffee trailer quickly became a Kelowna celebrity serving specialty coffee at the Kelowna Farmers Market for 2 years.
We now have a roastery and cafe in the North End of downtown Kelowna, roasting and serving what we believe is super delicious coffee. We have long since outgrown the home roaster, and use the best modern equipment to allow us to showcase amazing small lot coffees from all over the world. We source out and buy the best coffee we can find. Our roast profiles are typically on the lighter, brighter side, allowing the true characteristics of the coffees origin to shine. However we will admit our dark roast is a damn fine coffee as well.
