Culture at Dillanos Coffee – Q&A Series
I recently took a trip to Dillanos Coffee Roasters in Washington to interview CEO David Morris. Over a year ago, David and I connected on Facebook and when I saw that he was a coffee roaster, I immediately sent him a message asking if they had a good Decaf French Roast. I didn’t hear anything for a bit, and then a box of coffee showed up at my office. That’s one way to start a great friendship, if you ask me!
At Dillanos, David and I sat down to talk about their “Culture Club” and core values for this weeks Q&A Series.
“We literally live them (core values) everyday. And its important to me and my brother, who lead the company, that we set examples for being fun with accountability. If you don’t keep accountability in the equation, than everything is just fun and people are running around. It’s not just fun. It’s fun doing your job and that’s an important distinction.” – David Morris
You’re probably familiar with Dillanos because we’ve done a few interviews with David on the podcast and I’m a huge fan of their coffee. Which brings me to two exciting announcements:
- The podcast starts again next week! That’s right, you’ve asked for it and it’s back!
- Dillanos is offering a 15% discount on all coffee orders with the code CLOTRIBE – go to dillanos.com and check out their incredible selection! My personal favorite is the Entrepreneur Blend…
Special thanks to David, the entire Dillanos team, and my good friend Lance Osborne for traveling with me and shooting the video interview!
