Deyon Johnson, Founder
From the first sip of sweetened coffee made by and shared with my grandfather at the age of ten to the first hand-crafted gourmet espresso shots I was taught to pour at the age of eighteen, I knew I had found my passion. Preparing a delicious, carefully prepared drink for a smiling customer made me happy.
My start with Gourmet Latté
After managing two espresso companies, I was recruited by the owner of Gourmet Latté© to manage her very first espresso drive-thru right down the street from my home. The focus was on quality gourmet drinks using fresh Italian roasted beans and only the highest quality products.
With high expectations in customer service and getting to know all of the daily customers and families in the community, G.L. grew to ten locations and is now 22 and growing. I managed five locations in twelve years and trained new baristas and managers for other locations.
As I poured my heart and soul into this company and loved every minute of it, I knew it was time to try owning my own business and building a legacy for my family.
Gourmet Espresso Catering - Drinks so delicious they were left wanting more
In 2006 after much research, planning, and saving every extra dollar I could, I bought my first custom-made mobile espresso bar, and Gourmet Espresso Catering became a reality! I worked four part-time jobs while building my business one client at a time.
As the business grew, one thing never changed: clients consistently told me how much we stood out by providing over-the-top service that exceeded our clients' expectations, an extensive menu, and drinks so delicious they were left wanting more.
Now years later, Gourmet Espresso Catering has become a highly preferred and referred company serving the Seattle/Bellevue WA areas and beyond. My husband has joined the business, and we now work as a team. Our baristas amaze us, we love putting smiles on our clients' faces, and we are excited for what the future holds!
Thank you for your confidence in allowing us to add a higher level of service to your event.
