Les Dames d'Escoffier

Hannah Romberg

Hannah has currently thrown herself into an exciting new project with her business partner Chef Jon-Paul Hutchins— more details on that coming soon.

But coffee was Hannah’s milieu for 30+ years. She founded Phoenix-based Espressions Coffee Roastery in 1989; owned and ran the wholesale manufacturer and product/equipment distributor until 2021, serving the hospitality industry and selling retail at AJ’s and online. Hannah and her team passionately supported foodservice clients by helping them build and maintain successful coffee programs, offering barista training, menu consultation and recipe development. Espressions still specializes in developing signature coffees, cold brews and iced teas in partnership with clients; distributes coffee-related products (syrups, sauces, frappes, alternative milks) and commercial espresso and coffee/tea equipment.

As her “second” job, Hannah is a principal of Better Days Rescue, a 501C-3 that “rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes” dogs in need. For more information about Better Days, see www.betterdaysrescue.org.
