WHO ARE WE?
We’re the Haymaker team, and we know firsthand that the American Dream is alive and well, but it’s not easy. And without a great cup of coffee, it’s damn near impossible. We know this because—pardon our French Vanilla—we’ve worked our asses off to get here, and we still have a long way to go.
Growing up as first and second-generation American immigrants, we’ve scratched and clawed for every inch of progress we’ve made. From learning a new language as children, to working numerous minimum-wage jobs, to working our way up the ladder, we never needed any handouts or shortcuts—just a strong cup of coffee and a relentless nature.
So we started this small business with family and friends to make great coffee for people like us. People who dream, hustle, and persevere to achieve their version of the American Dream. People who savor every sip of the grind, drinking it in like sunshine that’s made from specialty-grade coffee beans, then roasted the hard way in a 100+ year-old historic roaster, right here in the USA.
But we aren’t only here to fuel the next American success story—we’re here to take genuine interest in your journey. We’re here to build a coalition of like-minded, hardworking people who can share in each other’s success. We’re here to hear your stories, collaborate, and make a tangible difference in both our local Jacksonville community AND the wider community connected by Haymaker’s never-give-up mindset.
The American Dream takes many shapes and forms. But its road is paved with gallons of midnight oil, buckets of elbow grease, cans full of can-do attitudes, and cups upon cups of great coffee. Despite what some say, this is still the land of opportunity. So when the odds seem stacked against you, and you’ve heard it all from the naysayers, grab life by the beans and show them nothing stops a Haymaker.
So what are you waiting for? Pour up a cup of coffee and go achieve your American Dream!
