Meet Nate...

Nate is the man behind Karol Coffee Co. He dreams of one day opening up a coffee shop in Northeast Minneapolis—a beautiful space for people to gather and share life together. In the meantime, he figured he’d learn how to roast coffee. He’s been supported and encouraged by a whole host of neighborhood friends who have helped make the first step in this dream a reality.

Why "Karol"?

Why “Karol”? Northeast Minneapolis is a historically Polish neighborhood, and Karol Wojtyla (1920-2005) is a bit of patron saint of Northeast. He was a world-renowned philosopher, theologian, poet, playwright, outdoorsman, and all-around badass. He helped establish the Polish Solidarity Movement and bring down communism in the Soviet Union. Oh and he was also the longest reigning Pope in modern history.
