There are only two things James Freeman has ever really wanted to do: play the clarinet and make coffee.
Today, Freeman is best known as the founder of Blue Bottle Coffee, the premium coffee chain with more than 75 upscale cafes around the world, famed for the long lines of customers who wait for its individually brewed cups of coffee.
In 2017, Swiss food giant Nestle bought a majority stake in Freeman’s company in a deal that reportedly values Blue Bottle at more than $700 million.
