Bob Phillips is the commander and coffee maestro behind Kiss Café.

Bob has been a pillar in the coffee industry for more than 40 years. He’s mastered everything the business has to offer – including sourcing, production, roasting, merchandising, quality control, logistics, purchasing and sales.

Since 1998, he’s served as president and CEO of Caturra Corp. – a small boutique coffee importing and trading firm out of Elmsford, NY. The corporation specializes in the import of specialty green coffees from across the globe.

Throughout his career, Bob has worked with some of the largest commodities and roasters in the world, including notable Maxwell House Coffee Division. Given his major contribution and dedication to the coffee industry, Bob decided it was finally time to turn his attention to Kiss Café and work with his son and grandson – cementing a family legacy in coffee.
