Sassy Pecan began its story in Minnesota in September 2016 as transplanted Southerners. Our mission was to “plant a little piece of home wherever we were.” In 2020, we relocated back home to the South.
I appreciated a lot about growing up Southern. Life was simpler, food was about quality, and work was completed with fun, humor, and a dash of sass.
Sassy’s journey started by tinkering with a bowl of freshly roasted pecans, sugar, cinnamon, and butter. There’s been a whole lotta changes since then, but our passion for pecans hasn’t budged an iota. Seriously, who doesn’t love pecans?
Our store closed in August 2022 to spend more time with family. Running a store is time consuming and new grandchildren were the priority! Now my time is spent selling our coffee and helping other small candy and cafe shops build their dreams.
Sassy Pecan coffee is still in the family. Blends were created just for us with the help of family with over 60 years roasting, selling, and creating specialty coffee blends experience. Our coffee is created using Grade 1, Fair Trade Organic beans. To put it simply, we use the best beans available. The taste reflects it.
Our customers love the results. Grandmother, the original Sassy, would approve.
