Ahab + Jessica Alhindi
Ahab and Jessica opened Madayne in March of 2013, and it quickly became one of Redding's premiere cafe's. Birthed through the idea of serving an exceptional product through legendary people Madayne grew in popularity over night. These two innovators decided to dream up their ideal cafe and make it a reality. After 6 months of working 60+ hours a week, Ahab and Jessica began to ask God for the purpose of their lives and what they heard changed everything. Ahab who is an international conference speaker and author heard that he was born to raise up and develop leaders. Which birthed Madayn LDP (leadership development program). This program works with their young team to develop them personally, and in leadership.
Walter and Ahab have been friends for years, originally meeting while Ahab was leading a trip to Cuba. These two have traveled around the world together and have a great connection and bond. Walter for years has had a love affair with coffee, going out of his was to find some of the best roasts in the country. He has attached himself to Catalyst Coffee Consulting, and has been trained by one of the most respected men in the coffee industry. Walter can be found Monday - Friday making drinks at Madayne Eatery and Espresso.
who we are
With over 20 years in coffee, roasting, sourcing and the like, Madayne opens its doors less as the new kid on the block and more with a professional, and developed understanding of Coffee and the delicate process of gather beans from around the world, to bring you the flavor profile you desire. Madayne is constantly looking for the unique story and the relational connection. We decided years ago, that as business people we don't have to work with everyone, just people that we like. This keeps the Madayne culture in our shop and around the world, relational, enjoyable and exciting.
