Showing a commitment to the source, Founder, Candy Schibli, details the integral nature of social
responsibility when selecting coffee. A graduate school educational excursion brought Candy to Costa
Rica to delve into the layered historical significance of coffee as a food, export, and livelihood for
international growers. In a recent Popville article, Prince of Petworth spotlighted Southeastern
Roastery for its impact as a women-owned, operated, and empowered brand devoted to sustainability
straight from the source. With this in mind, meet Candy at Songbyrd Music House & Record Cafe.
Coffee tastings are held the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month from 8-11 a.m. at the Adams Morgan
community staple. Coffee is sold daily by the cup and whole bean by the bag. Additionally, Rachel
Pace, Owner of Penny Brew, has signed on as a wholesale customer powered by Southeastern
Roastery. Penny Brew believes in the concept that “two people are better than one - more is
accomplished by working together”. The paths have now aligned for two black women with
engineering degrees and a passion for coffee. Lay the foundation. Build together.
