Historic Noir Coffee Group has a rich legacy of three men who grew up together in the Atlanta area. Our dream started in the mind of Ricardo Richardson. In 2009, Ricardo decided that he wanted to start a business where he didn't see a lot of minority participation. Initially, Ricardo sourced our coffee beans and roasting through a friend from Senegal, West Africa.
Soon, he asked childhood friends, Deron Moreman and Christopher Brown to become partners in this new enterprise. After successfully building a business infrastructure and brand we launched Historic Noir Coffee Group. Our initial focus was to provide businesses and government agencies with quality coffee products at an affordable price.
In 2015, we decided to re-launch our business with our Historic Noir Coffee branded items. Since our retail launch in 2016, we’ve been America’s First Black-Owned Nationally Distributed Coffee Brand. Out retail ready coffee blends bear the names of the areas we grew up in. Respectfully, our blends are labeled Fourth Ward, Decatur and West End.
