We believe that everyone has a story, it just takes the courage to tell it. Friends & Fables is a place where stories are told and lives are changed. Join us to hear the inspiring stories of three coffee companies, and learn how they leverage storytelling to grow their organization. We would love to see your face, drink a beer (or perhaps coffee) with you, and hear your story.

Kitti Murray of Refuge Coffee Company
Professional Story-teller // Founder of Refuge Coffee Co. // Voracious Reader // 38-Year Happy Marriage Veteran. She and her wise husband, Bill, (or Kiki and Chief to their growing tribe of adorable grandkids) live on the edge of Atlanta in a refugee community that CNN has called the most diverse square mile in the world. This has been the most intense and inviting neighborhood in their experience, for sure, and God has used it to teach them to dream big and love even bigger.
