What is La Selva Coffee brand?
Started in a small North Carolina apartment, (432 sqft. to be exact). La Selva Coffee epitomizes what it means to be a scrappy startup. Our organization is fierce and knows what it means to navigate the harsh jungle of business. This is why we've chosen the name "La Selva" the Spanish word for "Jungle". At La Selva we are just like you, lions ready to take on the world! That is why we aspire to help you take on your every day challenges with our fresh roasted coffee. We want to give you the energy and motivation you need to conquer your day.
Our Commitment to Growth
Yes our coffee is fresh, and yes it sets us apart, but making sure your cup of coffee is awesome isn’t the only thing that makes us different! What we really love to see is others succeed. This is where our commitment to support the small cubs of the world comes in. We know what it's like to be just starting out, and we know it's not easy to get people to acknowledge or recognize your brand! That’s why we strive to make you stand out as best we can!
We like to sponsor local or small businesses, artists, musicians, schools, and social groups on our website and social media accounts. We let the world know who they are and we promote their brand with our coffee.
About the Founder & CEO
Samuel Buchanan is a true adventurer. At the age of 22 he spent the better half of 9-months exploring South America. After spending time in Atacama Desert, marveling at the wonders of Machu Picchu, and camping for several days in the Amazon he learned a great deal about the richness of South American cuisine; but his favorite was his morning cup of coffee.
Upon returning to the United States, Samuel graduated with a degree in International Business and Spanish from Wake Forest University as well as a Masters in Business Management. He made it his mission to bring the great flavors of South America to the US one cup at a time!
