Getting to Know Sagebrush, Episode #2 - Jenna Kellso

by Matthew Kellso September 08, 2016 2 min read

A couple of months ago, I sent out an email with aQ&A about my sister Zoë.  It was fun to have her create & fill out the survey, and I was delighted by how many responses I received in response.  So it is time for another Q & A.  

This one is with my wife, Jenna.  She is the glue that keepsSagebrush Coffee together. Sagebrush Coffee wasn't her idea and isn't her passion, but she treats it like her own. If you call our number, you'll likely talk to her.  If you mistyped your mailing address, she made sure you got your coffee anyway (you'd be surprised how often that happens).  If we make a mistake strategically, she is the one that tells me and gets us going the right away again.  Every bag of coffee shipped in some way has her fingerprints on it.  

But that's not all.  We also have a sister business,Hackberry Tea.  She spends as much time on that business as Sagebrush, if not more. In fact, we joke that Hackberry Tea is hers while Sagebrush is mine and as with anything, it becomes a competition in this house.

She doesn't state it below, but when she's not working on Sagebrush, she is helping raise our three kids, volunteering at our church, running our household and caring for more people around her than I could count.  She truly is a treasure.

So let's learn a little bit more about Jenna Kellso.

Q & A With Jenna Kellso: 

My name is:Jenna

Where were you born?
Phoenix, AZ

I’m inspired by:
The Bible, my kids, nature. 

I collect:
Pens. I have way too many pens. I will definitely buy more. 

I never leave the house without:
My phone and my purse. And clothes. 

If I could live in any decade it would it be?
I'd love to spend time in the 1950's. 

On a Sunday afternoon, I like to:
Start laundry for the week and take a nap. If I don't do these very exciting activities, I'll be tired and behind on laundry. You get it. 

My favorite hobby:
I enjoy all things related to food and cooking, as well as crafts and decorating. 

What is your favorite TV show/shows? 
My all time favorite is 30 Rock- our Lemon Beagle is named after Liz Lemon!

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go? 
I've been trying to convince Matt to take me to Chicago-he's never been and I'd love to go back!

What is your favorite coffee from Sagebrush?
I have been enjoying the new Honduras

What talent besides packaging Sagebrush coffee do you have?
I am quite good at painting, really professional. Walls, not canvas. 

The best part about working at Sagebrush is:
Supporting my husbands passion and working alongside him on something that is important to both of us.


Here's a quick pick of Jenna and the kids at Disneyland a couple of weeks ago after Coffeefest Anaheim.

I asked Jenna, my wonderful wife and the glue that keeps Sagebrush Coffee together, to write an update / history of Sagebrush Coffee email to celebrate our 5 year anniversary.  It's pretty long and super kind.  Thanks Jenna for the great letter.  You didn't give yourself enough credit in it!
