Sarah and Stephanee met in 2001 when Sarah opened Big City Coffee in Boise, Idaho, and Stephanee became one her first employees. During a girls trip to Mexico in 2008, Stephanee noticed a lump that turned out to be breast cancer. The next three years were a blur of the highs and lows that come with cancer. They say 1 in 8 women get breast cancer and, well, they were right… There were 8 girls on that trip.
Sarah created “Big Titty Blend” as a way to show support for Stephanee and starting selling it in her coffee shop. She wanted to use a little humor to grab people’s attention so they would pick up a bag and read the story.
Stephanee Jane was the life of the party, the host with the most, a texan at heart, a glamour girl, a gourmet cook and the inspiration for big titty coffee. She was a daugther, a sister, a friend and is a survivor even in spirit.
After losing Stephanee, Sarah’s urge to do something to fight breast cancer became even stronger. She wanted to reach more people, to carry on Stephanee’s legacy, and to help other women facing breast cancer. So Joe Cans was born.
With our Cans, we hope to share with you so many things: a warm cup of coffee, a laugh, a memory, hope, and a chance to contribute to an exceptional cause…
