About Stiletto Coffee (& You)

For driven women with exquisite class, a touch of sass...

Who are bored of bland coffee from corporate giants or pretentious hipsters complicating and confusing the simple act of appreciating a hot and steamy daily ritual.

Stiletto Coffee is a small-batch specialty coffee roaster that sources 100% specialty-grade Arabica beans, roasts them to perfection and delivers the most delicious coffee to you on-demand, when you want it.

We're famous for our smokey and sultry flavor that accentuates that natural essence of the beans.

And unlike other coffee roasters Stiletto Coffee’s mission is to uplift, inspire and help women through our message and the 10% of profits that we donate to women's charities, initiatives and movements that serve them.

About Our Founder, Kenia Costanzo

Coffee has played an important role in Brazil’s history, and Brazil has played an important role in our founder’s history.

Kenia CostanzoKenia Costanzo was born in Minas Gerais, Brazil surrounded by coffee plantations where she played and worked as a child of humble parents.

She immigrated legally to the United States with her ex-husband in 2001 at the age of 23, speaking no English, without a college education and without much in the form of savings, but with an insatiable drive to succeed and take advantages of the opportunities in her new country.

Success is seldom a straight line, and Kenia’s path was no exception.

Within a few years of her arrival a divorce set her back and she found herself on her own, with broken english, a broken heart and a broken checking account.

Down but not out, Kenia took a job at a department store makeup counter to learn English and quickly became the #1 sales person.

She then entered the mortgage business and her grit and determination got her to the top ranks in the company and allowed her to earn a six-figure paycheck. Much of this she used to support her family and friends in Brazil who never made it to a land of greater opportunity, where she became a naturalized US Citizen.

Now happily married to a supportive husband, living in California, Kenia never lost her love for coffee or the art of roasting and brewing the perfect cup.

She launched Stiletto Coffee to rekindle her passion and make a difference in the lives of women, who like her, are driven and determined to live a life without regrets and achieving their fullest potential.

Little known fact:  Due to an injury on her foot, Kenia rarely wears stiletto heels and she misses their beauty and elegance.  "I may not be able to wear stilettos, but I never stopped loving them" Kenia says.

Our Mission:

Even with all of the progress that women have made in the U.S. and the world at large, we still face many obstacles. From the third world to the first world, we are often given less opportunity and less pay, for the same amount of work and often much more.

Kenia made a commitment to build a brand that not only provides some of the world’s finest coffee, but also helps to inspire and improve the lives of women everywhere...

Women like her, who refuse to quit, refuse to listen to people who say their dreams are impossible and who challenge themselves daily to never settle for less than they're worth.

That’s why every bag of Stiletto Coffee makes an impact on women to help them break their personal glass ceilings. Read more about our impact here

Why did we name it “Stiletto” Coffee?

It's funny, we never get this question from women, only men tend to ask us this because women, well, we "get it."

Yeah, we know that Marilyn Monroe famously said:

"Diamonds are a girls best friend"

But she also said...

Marilyn knew what's up!

Whether they meant status, caused pain, or symbolized beauty — heels have been a staple wardrobe piece from Ancient Egypt to today's red carpets and boardrooms.

stiletto heelsShoe designer Roger Vivier, who worked for Christian Dior, took credit for inventing the stiletto heel, using innovations to create a slender heel of incredible strength, proving that you can be small and incredibly strong.

The shoes helped create the modern sex symbol and as women rose the ranks in corporate America they also came to define women who meant business.

  • Stiletto Heels help a woman rise up, literally, on their toes.
  • Stiletto Coffee helps a woman rise up out of bed with a delicious kickstart to her day. And...
  • Stiletto Coffee’s impact-program of giving back and paying it forward helps women “rise up” in life!

But also, we love coffee and we love sexy shoes, so hell yeah, Stiletto Coffee is the best of both worlds!

Who Drinks Stiletto Coffee?

We’re often asked “Why is Stiletto Coffee just for women?”

Anyone can drink Stiletto Coffee; in fact some of our biggest fans are men.

But we know women, we love women and we believe that a brand built around helping women is a good thing, a needed-thing.

Stiletto Coffee is for... the busy mom, the career professional, and the woman balancing both. It’s for ambitious ladies leading lives of adventure, advancement and achievement and the woman who knows it’s going to be her turn soon.

It’s for the rebel who refuses to conform and independent women who cherish their relationships but aren’t defined by them.

It’s for the princess and the punk rocker (because we know you can sometimes be a little bit of both).

For the women who are extremely classy, a bit sassy and just like our coffee, they’re hot as hell, pure as an angel and sweet as love.

What? YOU FEEL THE SAME?

That's great. So buy some coffee, we'll deliver it to you freshly roasted, whole bean OR ground (for my lazy bitches! We love you too)

And if you don't love it, email us or call us and tell us.  We'll refund you.  But we haven't had a refund request yet (there's a reason for that).

Now, let's ask the dumbest question ever posed to a beautiful woman such as yourself.
