For a long time, Tony held the title of highest volume coffee roaster in San Antonio, seconded only by his brother Sami. These days, Tony handles service and delivery to wholesale clients, fathers two beautiful children, and upkeeps the tradition of authentic business relationships. Find him at every restaurant in town, at the star-parties he hosts at the warehouse, and carefully tending to the coffee plants at Finca La What’s Brewing? (Check our Facebook page periodically to see when the next Star Party is! Come by for food, coffee, and awesome telescope viewings.)
The youngest of three kids growing up in San Antonio, Sami watched as his father worked hard to bring specialty coffee to South Texas. He began roasting beside his brother and father in 1997. Sami, and the rest of the Chbeir kids, graduated from Churchill High School, where he met his wife Natalie. They have three kids whom they love to travel with. He’s a fair mountain biker, a lousy dancer and a lover of audio books.
Christopher is a lover of life who can’t seem to sit still. He’ll answer your phone calls, design a bar, and pull an espresso all at the same time. One day, he’ll conquer the world, but for now, he’s just managing our office, working towards a PhD, and learning how to pour latte art.
Jake, or “dude” as he’s better known, is an ex-barista, sculptor, and owner of a couch. He works in our office and store, learning about coffee from the roasters’ perspective, and helping customers get the coffee they’re looking for.
A homegrown coffee geek and environmentalist, Mo was found by What’s Brewing thanks to his high school calculus teacher he was selling his own home roasted coffee to. He enjoys live music, cooking, riding his bike, and sending memes to his three siblings.
Father to 2 beautiful daughters, an artist to some, who enjoys travel, watching NBA basketball, listening to hip hop, and is an avid railroad enthusiast.
Anthony loves to cook, the outdoors, and going to his ranch.
John loves to go outdoors and to the ranch, cooking, but most of all, hanging out with his Dad.
Roger is the reason we’re all here. He’s a living legend whose story cannot justifiably be fit on an internet webpage. You’ll have to visit our store in hopes of catching him and hearing the stories firsthand. While you’re here, you can take home some of the blend that carries his namesake, Roger’s Blend, originally blended by Roger himself.
