WHO ARE WE?
FIRST SUPPLY COFFEE
First Supply Coffee is a Pungo, Virginia based coffee company to provide premium, freshly roasted coffee. It was started on January 6, 2020 by Forrest & Molly Knight - a company that stemmed from their absolute love of coffee. The goal for First Supply Coffee is to create a lineup of only the best coffee blends for everyone to enjoy.
Behind the Name
The story behind the name goes back to 1607 when Forrest's ancestor, Thomas Savage, boarded the John and Francis ship with Captain Christopher Newport at the age of 13 to cross the Atlantic Ocean. He arrived at Jamestown, Virginia in 1608 on the first supply ship to America, which gives the name to First Supply Coffee.
Shortly after arriving, Captain Christopher Newport claimed Thomas Savage as his own son and left him to live with Chief Powhatan to learn the ways of the Native Americans. Chief Powhatan treated Thomas as his son, while he rendered invaluable aid to the colony as interpreter. There is much more to his story, but we will leave it at this - Thomas Savage's ability to speak to and for both cultures was key to the survival of the settlement.
