It took an entire year operating an aviation consulting business out of local cafes until I discovered great coffee. I always liked coffee but never loved it until an introduction to a high-quality African light roast coffee. I had no idea coffee could taste so good! When my perception shifted, so did my business mission from space and aviation to now helping others discover great coffee. The adventure started by creating a coffee subscription service called The Wright Cup and that experiment led to the co-founding of Third Wave Water due to a much larger need discovered…the profound effects that water can have when brewing coffee. We launched Third Wave Water in 2016 quickly finding our way onto ABC’s TV show Shark Tank sharing our solution to fix the water-for-coffee problem while spreading the good news of specialty coffee to the Sharks and their audience.

Our mission hasn’t changed and we are honored to be a part of Clive Coffee’s mission to help you make better coffee at home! Join us as we discuss why water is so important to brew a great cup of coffee and what you can do about it.
