Small World Coffee opened its first location on Witherspoon street in Princeton, NJ 1993.   Jessica was born in Berkeley, CA and grew up overseas in Italy, Brazil, and Australia.

With a passion for the hospitality and food business, Jessica attended Cornell’s School of Hotel and Restaurant Management. Upon graduation she worked in the coffee industry prior to embarking on opening Small World Coffee.   Through the café, Jessica is able to support multiple causes and initiatives that resonate with the mission of the company. This includes, but is not limited, agriculture, hunger, land preservation, and the arts. Jessica is also very interested in organizational culture and developing a company that “builds community from the inside out”.   Since operating Small World Coffee, Jessica has been honored by the Princeton Chamber of Commerce as Entrepreneur of the Year in 2005 and by the YWCA’s Tribute to Women in 2011.  She has been active on the board of the Arts Council of Princeton and currently serves on the Princeton University Art Museum Community Leadership Council.
