This is a story about a coffee with a heart. Jose Rene Martinez jumped into the coffee business 13 years ago without knowing much about beans. It started with the purchase of a coffee roaster, then more equipment, his passion grew, and J Rene’ Coffee Roasters in West Hartford, Connecticut was born. One of his coffee brands called VICTUS helps non-profits who promote wellness, social advocacy and empowerment thru endurance sports and that includes the cycling community abroad and in the U.S. There’s no WIFI in the place, because he wants people to have real conversations and make connections. He’s traveled the world in search of what the coffee business is all about. He’s met many people who are behind the hard work of growing and harvesting beans which is why it’s so important for him to help others.
