Beverly Malbranche is the founder and CEO of Caribbrew, an impact-driven company that specializes in Arabica beans sourced from farmers in Haiti. The Newark, N.J.-based business aims to bridge the gap between the Caribbean’s centuries-old coffee and cacao traditions and its consumers in the United States.
As a Black female business owner, she is working to close the racial representation gap in the coffee industry. Malbranche grew up in Haiti and came to the U.S. in 2009 to study business administration. She knew early on she wanted to start a business selling a product of Haiti to U.S. consumers. While pondering this, she fell in love with the aromas and history of Haiti’s coffee and chocolate. Since 2016, she decided to embark on a journey to revive Haiti’s coffee sector and create opportunities. In her spare time, you can find her exploring NYC or reading a book at local café.
