Meet Kiaira Ferguson, Mom to daughter E’Lyven (11), and the Founder of Kiki’s Koffee. Originally from Lawton, Oklahoma and raised in Morrow, Georgia, Kiaira
What is your background? Tell us about your career.
I’m a former barista for a few popular brands that developed a passion for all things caffeine! Coffee became my life about 2 years ago.
What called you to become an Entrepreneur?
I decided to start up Kikis Koffee during my pregnancy because I couldn’t drink coffee but I could smell it! I also researched and noticed African American brands weren’t really in coffee so I wanted to become part of the coffee community and leave an impact by bringing some unique flavors and names to the coffee world.
What is the best thing about your job?
The best thing about Kiki’s Koffee is that we bring you flavors named after your favorite hip hop songs from the 80s, 90s and early 2K! I love seeing people scan the codes and listen to these hits!
What do you love about Peachtree City and the surrounding areas?
I honestly love this side of town because Peachtree City, Newnan, Sharpsburg areas feel family oriented. There isn’t a much of a hustle and bustle like in Atlanta. It’s much less toned down and kid friendly.
Currently, we have a weekly ritual of going to Cava in Peachtree City lol and we finish it off by going to Marble Slam Creamery!
What is your best “working mom” tip and/or Mom Hack?
Some advice for moms is to let kids be kids! Let them explore and discover what they like and dislike on their own.
