Our mission is not just to sell coffee, but to create relationships while providing a product we are extremely proud of.
My college athletic career empowered me to pursue my NFL Dream. I was blessed and fortunate enough to have the opportunity to play for the Cincinnati Bengals and the New England Patriots. I was really happy and proud of myself for achieving my lifelong goal. However, into my second year of professional football, something started to come over me. One day at practice, I asked myself, “Is this all that you have to offer the world, Floyd?” I pondered for days about what to do and entering into my second season, I made the decision that I would hang up the cleats and focus my energy elsewhere. At that time I had no clue what I was giving up my first dream for; I just knew God was telling me to do more.
Shortly after, A simple date in Cincinnati with my wife would be the catalyst to my entrepreneurship within the coffee industry. We came across the Cincinnati coffee festival that is held every year in Cincinnati. At that time, I had no clue what I was giving up my first dream for; I just knew God was telling me to do more,” Mr. Raven notes. Putting his business degree to work, he founded the Last Shot Xpresso company in 2017. The rich and unique coffee blends with their athletically-inspired names drew a discerning crowd of coffee lovers. After discovering that my Alma Mater was building a hotel on campus I knew that this was an opportunity to get my start. Well, I was right because it was. In August 2018 Last Shot Xpresso was named the exclusive coffee provider for the New Texas A&M Hotel and Conference Center. This was truly a blessing.
From there, I was driven to create a coffee brand with outstanding customer service and selfless employees. My mission is not just to sell coffee, but to create relationships while providing a product I am extremely proud of.
