About Java Momma
The idea for Java Momma came about in September 2017. Melissa and Brian Shoop came up with the basic concept for Java Momma at their kitchen table one Friday night. The focus would be on relationships from the very start. A company built from the ground up to serve the needs of fellow direct sellers, with the focus on customer relationships. Java Momma cares about the community, providing leadership to our baristas, maintaining your trust, and product integrity.

CEO & President
I am the CEO and President of Java Momma. Before all this awesomeness, I was a major “kitnapper” in many direct sales companies, a consultant in a few that I ran as a business, and still a loyal shopper of many. I am married to Brian (you’ll read his story in a minute) and between us, we have eight kids, three grandkids – one on the way, and three dogs and two cats.
I’m Brian! Husband to Melissa, CFO of Java Momma. I also work full time for Geisinger Health System as a Computer Analyst. I’ve been there for 30 years. The thing I love most is all the adventures Melissa and I have with her brainstorms.

She loves Java Momma’s model because of the open and non-restrictive way that the business is allowed for, haven’t seen another direct sales business like it. Baristas can really bring their creativity and make it their own. Not a coffee drinker, she loves the Peppermint cocoa and the calming teas.
