About Regina Troyer and The Refinery Coffee Company
Regina Troyer, founder and owner of The Refinery Coffee Company, is no stranger to hard work. Having grown up as one of four daughters in an Amish family, Regina attributes much of her success to her father’s mantra: “Work at everything with all that you have.” Creating a sense of family and community has always been important to Regina and that shows in every aspect of business at the Refinery.
What started off as a small endeavor has grown into a company that is celebrated worldwide, having roasted over 55,000 pounds of coffee just last year.
Regina is involved in every aspect of her business, working tirelessly to perfect the craft of coffee roasting. “I believe in our products”, says Troyer, “Our coffee goes to a lot of different places and can be found in many different homes. It gives me a sense of satisfaction knowing that so many people are enjoying our coffee every morning and that it is quality. We care about what goes in your cup”. Coffee isn’t
just coffee, it is community. It draws people together and provides the motivation to tackle each new day head on: Nobody understands that better than Regina Troyer.
