A little more about us...

Vida is coffee company, fully run by students, that aims to help customers foster connections with people in their community. Located in West Allis, WI, Vida also offers online orders for the unique coffee beans from the Dominican Republic. We offer one time purchases, subscriptions for a periodic delivery, or wholesale services.

Vida is a part of a student-run organization developed by Blue & Gold Ventures, Inc. based out of Marquette University. Executives of Vida were offered the opportunity to explore and meet the farmers which grow our beans in the Dominican Republic. We are set to open our West Allis location at the end of summer.

Our mission is to connect our students and community to a world network of people by integrating our services with the our core values. This includes knowing our operations from every aspect. We take a trip to the Dominican Republic every year to learn the stories of the workers who supply us with our coffee and to learn the processes in which we receive our products.

If you are interested in following along with the initial stages of Vida, check out our social media accounts. We would love for you to join us on this journey.
