Minch Coffee’s Story
Husband and wife Mathias and Suzanne Bernal have been in the coffee industry since 2005.
Mathias is a native of France. His great grandfather used to own a coffee shop in the region of Dordogne. During World War 2, his grandfather’s shop was confiscated by the Nazis. He lost everything and fled to the South of France to escape the Nazi occupation. Mathias’s lifelong dream has been to start his own business in general and a coffee shop in particular to carry on his family heritage. He has been working in the food industry since 1998.
Suzanne is from Sioux City, Iowa. She became interested in the coffee industry while a college student, studying abroad and loving the café experience in Europe. She received intensive coffee training in Portland in 2005 and has been hooked ever since.
Mathias and Suzanne were co-founders of Axum Coffee in Winter Garden and worked for the company from 2009-2020.
Minch was named after the city of Arba Minch, a city in Ethiopia, the birthplace of coffee. Coffee grew wild in the forests of this region and it is the home of two of the best coffees in the world: Yirgacheffe and Sidamo.
Given Minch’s unique partnership with the Orlando Cat Café, the coffeeshop will also serve cat-themed fare, such as macarons and cupcakes as well as fun drinks such as the Black Cat Mocha and KitTea Latte.
