According to reports, the 47-year-old rapper’s father, Bob Phillips, has been involved in the coffee industry since 1977. Since 1998, he has served as president and CEO of Caturra Corp., a boutique importing and trading firm that specializes in international green coffees. Bob Phillips shared,
“This is one of my proudest professional and personal achievements. There is no greater honor than taking what you’ve learned in this life and inspiring your family to join you and bring that pursuit to the next level.”
The youngest Phillips reportedly became involved in the coffee industry in 2018. Jaewon Phillips said,
“Kiss Café is authentic. It’s real. No gimmicks. It’s been in our family for well over 40 years and everything we do here is from the core.”
Reports state Kiss Café launched with its Beijo roast, which translates to kiss in Portuguese. The medium-dark Arabica blend is sourced from Central America and comes in whole bean or ground options. For now, Beijo is available exclusively online via the company’s website. Prices start at $14.99. Jadakiss explained,
“This coffee is for all coffee lovers. No specific age or background or knowledge. Coffee is a universal and a personal thing. Everyone enjoys it differently. And, we’re here to help them do that.”
Reportedly, Kiss Café will announce its first retail and experiential partners in the coming months.
