At the heart of General Warfield’s Coffee is a story of love, resilience, and a remarkable journey from the battlefields to the coffee fields. Our brand is inspired by the fictional General Warfield, a character renowned for his boldness, class, and compassion. Choosing peace and love over war, he embarked on a new mission with his wife to explore the world of coffee. This narrative mirrors the real-life story of John and Onome Warfield, who, despite being oceans apart due to the pandemic and political challenges, never lost faith in their love or their dream. Their unwavering commitment to each other and their business is what makes General Warfield's Coffee not just a brand, but a testament to the power of perseverance and unity.

During a time when the world stood still, faced with the uncertainties of a pandemic and the complexities of international politics, John and Onome's separation across continents tested their resolve. This period, though challenging, underscored the essence of what General Warfield stands for—boldness in the face of adversity, the class in maintaining dignity and respect, and compassion towards each other and their community. Drawing strength from their fictional muse and their unwavering love, they continued to operate General Warfield's Coffee, bridging distances with their passion for coffee and shared dreams.

Now reunited in Maryland, they bring a unique blend of courage, love, and dedication to every cup of coffee they offer. This journey from being apart to working side by side in Maryland is a cornerstone of their brand, symbolizing that together, they are unstoppable.

"Our journey, much like General Warfield's, is a testament to what can be achieved when love leads the way. From battling separation to brewing the finest coffee, we stand together, dedicated to offering you not just a product, but a piece of our heart, our history, and our relentless spirit. Join us in savoring a cup of coffee that's brewed with passion, resilience, and the joy of rekindled unity."

Our journey began during a trip to East Africa in January 2020, eventually inspiring us to form General Warfield's Coffee and source high-altitude specialty beans while upholding our belief in sustainability and ethical practices.

We like to think every bean is a testament to our story, ensuring you receive the aromatic essence and palatable journey of the finest 100% arabica specialty-grade coffee.
