Jackson stated that her interest in coffee stems from her background in the culinary arts. When she was in college, she started working at Starbucks, where she learned more about the different beans and the regions they came from to help guests. She would use the variety of flavors, coffee and sodas to make her own drinks to see what different combinations tasted good.

She graduated from Dorsey Culinary School in 2011 and started working for Joe Muer in Bloomfield Hills. There she was introduced to the idea of ​​roasting coffee beans.

“Roasters came in to teach the owner about coffee and I listened to the reviews because I thought the idea of ​​roasting was so interesting and wanted to learn about coffee. Then I wanted to open a coffee shop, ”said Jackson.

After doing some research, Jackson found a roaster to work with and launched Detroit Black Coffee in November 2019. She was looking for places to open the cafe, but just a few months before the coronavirus pandemic broke out, she had to stop plan to rotate and switch.

“I bottled my juice, coffee, and lattes from my house to get my name out there, but that’s for now,” said Jackson. “We’re in the process of building a mobile trailer and we’re almost there.”

The trailer enables Detroit Black Coffee to travel to different locations around the city, make it easier to cater for events, and feed more individuals across the community.

Jackson said, “We’re not just in town; We’re in town and every fourth Saturday we go out and feed the homeless. They say the coffee girl will go and get in line immediately because they know they will get coffee and a good meal. I feed them no less than what I would like to eat. “

For the moment, Jackson is feeding around 50 people each time and she looks forward to finalizing the trailer and growing her business so she can feed even more people more often.

As a lifelong Detroit woman, Jackson felt it was important to keep her business down town and serve those in need in her own community.
