Glenn was looking for a quick graphic design project when I met him in 2015. We started with some website graphics and a new coffee-pot tag, and the projects evolved from there.
Over the years we have collaborated through two new websites, 5 different bag designs, a sister company called Taste Coffee, numerous graphics, two email strategy overhauls, social media marketing, rebranding, and everything in-between.
Desert Sun Coffee, now owned by Zachary Ray, is thriving more than ever. The company has continued to grow and the future looks bright.
As we move forward, we are moving into a third rotation of website, branding, email strategies and more.
With a deep passion of the industry and a unique coop connection directly to the farmers, this coffee roaster is going to be one to keep an eye on!

I have worked with Khara for over 8 years now on various marketing projects that have ranged from small ads to full website creation. That should say something right there, as having that long of a relationship with the same marketing person is truly an accomplishment. As a small business owner I really enjoyed the creative process with Khara and her ability to take my (sometimes not so straightforward) concepts or ideas and materialize them into a deliverable. Her ability to garner ideas and concepts from conversations is a true talent. She was very good at asking the necessary questions to gain clarity so she could produce products that met our needs effectively. I always found Khara to be forthcoming with ideas that were in alignment with our goals and she was very good at communicating in order to make sure projects were moving along in a timely manner as well as in an agreed upon direction. It’s a true rarity to find someone that is so responsive and timely in their work. We always counted on Khara to really be a part of our team and to bring the creative as well as the process to our marketing needs. I believe we have been really successful in our social media, as well as our online sales effort, due in no small part to Khara.
