Shannon Mackey is Lucky Shot Coffee's founder and roaster. She first became interested in the world of coffee while living in Oxford, Mississippi and working as a barista. But it was when she tried her first cup of air roasted coffee that she fell hopelessly in love and decided to buy an air roaster and kick off her little coffee business. She is drawn to the adventure of small business and to the labor of love from farm to cup that is the coffee industry.
When she's not roasting coffee, Shannon enjoys photography, playing her ukulele, and long walks in the woods.
She lives in Mobile, Alabama with her husband and their dog, Beasley.
She considers herself a very lucky girl.
