Who We Are

Push Coffee Forward

We are all driven by something. Something that gets us out of bed, something that lights a fire inside each of us. For us, that drive is rooted in something very simple. We believe through our work in retail, wholesale, and home, we can take the coffee experience to the next level, while still being approachable, warm, and with a deep focus on hospitality.


We think everyone deserves the opportunity to taste the best coffees in the world. We work relentlessly to never stop improving what we do and how we do things, and we want to create new contexts in how you experience great specialty coffee. We can't wait to share with you.



The Founders


Bar Nine was founded in 2013, opening our doors April 2014. Bar Nine was founded by two friends that thought they could create something different.


Zayde is a lifelong coffee professional with a background in retail, the arts, and events. Bar Nine is the culmination of his thoughts on where coffee service should be going, and also a starting point in many ways to bigger, industry-changing ideas.


Jereme Pitts is an entrepreneur that has a simple focus in his career: make the community he's in stronger. From development to technology and more, that idea is his constant.


The Team


Our crew is a diverse mix of empathetic, impassioned, and hard-working individuals who care about delivering a consistently memorable coffee experience, whether that is in our cafe, in your home, or your business.
