A MESSAGE THE OWNERS
MORNE & NICOLE
We are Morne and Nicole van Staden, owners of Journey Coffee Co. When we moved to Vacaville, we only knew one thing…we were meant to be in Vacaville. We DID NOT know we were here to start a coffee shop. As life goes, we had a plan, but there was another plan. After losing our job within 3 months of moving here, we had to go back to the drawing board. Two things kept coming up: people & coffee. In summer 2013, a friend approached us about starting a coffee truck. Black Friday 2013, the truck launched it’s business in the Vacaville Premium Outlets. Over the year, the truck continued to operate in the outlets, while visiting local businesses, such as banks and hospitals. There was such a desire for third wave coffee in the Vacaville area that we decided to open a brick & mortar in the Alamo Plaza, along with welcoming our first son. In 2015, Journey took over the building space next door and expanded the menu to offer smoothies, cold-pressed juices, and more food options. This expansion also included the birth of our second son. 2017 resulted in “in-house roasting,” and in early 2018, a second location was launched in Fairfield, CA, shortly after the birth of our third son. The second location has “Phase 1” open, and “Phase 2” and “Phase 3” will open later this year. The next two phases will include a much larger roasting and baking facility, increase capabilities for catering, and include much more seating. As the business grows, there are more opportunities for employment, more seats for people in the community, and more space to display goods from local vendors.
We hope you love your experience at Journey every single time. Thank you for stopping by and allowing us to share in your adventure.
With love & respect,
Morne & Nicole (Luke, Josh & Eli too!)
