*NEWS: Innovative Coffee Company Teams Up With Aston Martin

An innovative coffee company that sources rare coffee has teamed up with Aston Martin in Newport Beach to supply coffee to its monthly Cars and Coffee Event Series.

The next one is on Saturday.

Conscious Bean, with HQ in Costa Mesa, is a boutique coffee roaster and caffeination design firm.

Founder Matthew Evilsizor self-funded the startup, which is in revenue. It counts several revenue streams including subscriptions, consulting on restaurant and cafe development and events, where it brings its mobile espresso bar.

Prominent customers include NBC 4 LA, Rolls-Royce North America, Hyundai Financial, South Coast Plaza, Aston Martin Newport Beach and Hulu.

The board of advisors includes Richard Brazil, a retired Starbucks exec, and Patricia Eisenhardt.

Evilsizor said Conscious Bean is unique because the coffee is individually tailored to each client. The coffee is organic and non-GMO.

The company creates flavors from scratch and steeps the beans for at least 36 hours.

Its products are sustainably sourced and compostable, reusable or renewable.

And, the company plants trees every time it does an event, to offset its footprint.
