Ricardo Sariñana Jr. Bio
Written by: Megan Sariñana
The oldest in a large family, Ricardo Sariñana, was a jack of all trades until 2015, when he found his true calling in coffee. Growing up, Rick was always an adrenaline junkie, so it makes sense that he would end up in a business known for boosting energy levels.Regulars of Brews Brothers are also familiar with his artistic ability, evident in the intricate way that he designs the signs inside the coffee shop. Although, he has always had a knack for art and lettering, his artistic interests don’t end there. A big music fan, he enjoys all kinds of music and even knows his way around a guitar. He might even tell you that his roasts taste better with the right soundtrack. As a roaster, Rick will tell you that you can’t have a favorite coffee roast because you have to give each one a chance. You have to keep yourself unbiased to ensure that each blend receives the same meticulous attention in order to bring out the best and precise flavors in each roast.Really Rick? You don’t have a favorite blend?? Actually between you and I, his current favorite is Peru medium. This South American blend profile has a strong nutty flavor with tones of chocolate that Rick just can’t stay away from, but don’t tell him I told you 😉 In fact, if you want to know why he loves it so much, you should just come in and try it for yourself!

If you’ve met Jessica Sarinana, you know she is always in motion. Since 2015 a large portion of that energy has been devoted into creating your favorite coffee shop. Bitten by the travel bug at age two when her family moved to Costa Rica, Jessica Sarinana has visited or lived in over 8 countries before settling down in Sierra Vista. With such a nomadic background she brings a unique perspective to the coffee business, having picked and eaten coffee straight off the coffee trees where she grew up in Ecuador. Of course she hasn’t stopped there! Since opening the shop she has played a pivotal role in creating the Tashi Tea line (specialty tea blends), as well as the popular deli lunch counter which serves premium cheese and meats and unique home made sauces.Not just an entrepreneur, Jessica cares for the local community. She is on a first name basis with most Brews Brothers regulars, and she is always interested in collaborating with local vendors and artists to help bring awareness to the hidden gems in our area.Stop by and say hi to our favorite fireball, and while you’re at it ask her to recommend one of her favorite Tashi Tea blends.
Brews Brothers Coffee was first opened in 2007 by a friend of the family. We purchased the roaster from him in 2015 and the rest is history…
