Meet the Founder

To me, “Sip” is more than just coffee terminology: it represents a part of who I am and where I’m from. My name is Jake West, founder of The Sip Coffee Co., born and raised in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. I have been an avid coffee enthusiast from my very first sip, but I didn’t know that I would one day make a career out of it. 
In high school, I enrolled in a vocational program and instantly became inspired by entrepreneurship. However, for generations, my family has served in the United States military, and so, like my father and his father before him, I enlisted in the service at 19 years old. My years in the United States Air Force have come with many unique opportunities, alongside world-class mentorship. But I never stopped thinking about starting my own company. And so, after four years in the service, I decided it was time to chase my dream. 
At first, I was uncertain where to start or how to create a product that people would feel connected to. But then it hit me…my passion for coffee! Armed with my knowledge in business and leadership, coupled with my genuine love for coffee, I devoted tireless hours to researching and crafting a product and service that would surpass what the "big Box Stores" offered, placing the customer's experience at the heart of it all. Thus, The Sip’ Coffee Co. came to life—a company conceived with the customer's utmost satisfaction at heart. 
Coffee culture has become a way of life, and we are committed to crafting a customer journey that delivers a seamless experience with a product that goes above and beyond expectations.
