Founded by soccer people for soccer people, Kickoff Coffee is the drink that fuels the Women in Soccer network, and specifically, our Coffee & Progress events. Partnering with Kickoff Coffee Co. was an easy decision for the WIS team; they are women-founded, women-led, supported by allyship, philanthropic in spirit and rooted in growing access to the beautiful game.

Rasha Qumsiyeh, Rasha’s passion for soccer comes mainly from its power to unite people from around the globe, regardless of who you are or where you come from. She also values the power it has to heal and transform the lives of many refugees and immigrants by connecting the beautiful game and its people.

“We’re Colombian so coffee has always been a part of our culture and in our blood. A year ago my brother just sort of pitched a business idea and it instantly became a matrix in my mind of passions coming together…soccer AND coffee! What’s not to love!?”

Melissa Ortiz, Co-Founder Kickoff Coffee Co.
