Our Story

Why we do what we do 

It is a mixture of care and curiosity. We believe anything can be accomplished with enough of these two qualities.

We love coffee. Many of our loved ones are coffee lovers. Coffee has been our favorite thing to wake up to as well as our favorite drink to enjoy over great conversations. Put simply, it’s been an important part of our everyday lives and we want to do what we can to create the best possible experience. 

It is our hope that our work would help the coffee lovers in our lives create more memorable moments. And we sincerely hope the same for you.

From 'Auroma One' to 'Orenda'

We are excited to explore the new beginning that Orenda represents. The brand Orenda signifies care and dedication in the pursuit of excellence – the spirit that we share as a team.

For all of you our early supporters, thank you for having been here all along. The earliest of you guys made this a reality!

For everyone, cheers for the wonderful things to come in this new chapter!
