Our Story

Big Watt was created under the roof of Five Watt Coffee, a thriving neighborhood coffee shop in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Founders Lee Carter, Jason Westplate and Caleb Garn combined their powers and passions as three coffee and beverage industry veterans with similar philosophies.

With a test kitchen at their fingertips and a built-in focus group with Five Watt’s customers, Big Watt cold press coffee was carefully crafted through testing, learning and improving. And through this process, they have taken the innovative and delicious beverages created at Five Watt out into the world, in a way that’s easy to share, and tastes as good and fresh as it does in the coffee shop.

From the shop to the can, they have found a way to share cold press coffee at its best, wherever and whenever you need it. Coffee shop quality, without the commute.
