About Me

Hi, my name is Keren Blount, owner and roaster of Runner Coffee Co. 

I have always been an avid runner and coffee drinker.  In fact, it was my love for coffee that propelled me to start a career in coffee as a roaster.

After several years of roasting coffee and learning the ins and outs of the industry I was completely obsessed.

I realized the important role coffee played in my running, not just for getting me out of bed but for improving my overall athletic performance. My runs were significantly better and more enjoyable after a cup of joe.  I always wondered why that was.

After some research I found out that there's some pretty awesome benefits of having coffee before a run... That's when the idea struck me and I decided to start Runner Coffee Co.
