One Response to "Red Bay Coffee"
  1. Any investment starts with the entrepreneur. Keba is not just an amazing entrepreneur – he’s a good job creator, community builder and visionary leader. This kind of leadership transcends the Red Bay Coffee culture, team, and is the secret ingredient in every bean roasted out of their Oakland headquarters. If you believe in small business, good jobs, and building an equitable community invest in Red Bay Coffee and be apart of the “brewing” of something special.
