“I wanted to get out of the house and got a job at a local coffee house,” she says — namely, Custom House Coffee in Middletown, Rhode Island, where she lived.

The name’s licensed from Custom House, and they roast according to shared recipes, offering single-origin beans and six blends.
“The R&R roast, for instance, is 50 percent Costa Rican, 50 percent Colombian Supremo,” she says. “It’s a medium roast, and it’s my favorite. It’s going to be our house blend.” Seymour and Newhart also plan on donating a dollar to veteran support organization Vets4Vets-Colorado for every pound of beans they sell.
