Nate & Valerie


When Valerie, a born Yooper, introduced Nate to the Upper Peninsula over 7 years ago, Nate was completely taken with the area’s beauty. Married in 2012 at the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge, already having developed their business plan for KCW, Nate and Valerie decided it was time to make the move north. They are both extremely delighted to join the thriving Keweenaw community. Both Nate and Valerie are members of the Specialty Coffee Association of America.
