Katz Coffee: The Official Coffee of UHAA and Proud Team UHAA Partner

Katz Coffee is a success story that personifies the drive, determination and limitless energy that is synonymous with its founder and proud University of Houston alumnus, Avi Katz (’97).

A lifetime coffee connoisseur, Katz has always dreamed of his own coffee line. The journey was anything but simple, but his determination never waned.

Katz’s passion and ambition led him to the University of Houston after three years at LSU in Baton Rouge. “The Hilton College,” notes Katz, “changed my life. It educated me on the facets of entrepreneurship and what it takes to convert dreams into a successful enterprise.

“Most importantly,” Katz continued, “it offered relationships that I still rely on today. The friendships forged at UH are the foundation of Katz Coffee. For that, I will forever be indebted to my alma mater.”

Today, Katz Coffee is one of the fastest growing coffee companies in the country, and given the nation’s expanding coffee landscape, that is saying a lot. UHAA is proud, therefore, to recognize Katz Coffee as the Official Coffee of the University of Houston Alumni Association and proud Team UHAA partner.

This new sponsorship pays tribute to common values, a shared standard of excellence and a collective commitment to the rise of UH as a Top 50 national, comprehensive public research university.

It also reflects a concerted effort to celebrate Houston alumni who are using their UH education to truly impact the world. “Katz Coffee,” concludes Katz, “is a coffee brand that is also a Cougar Brand, a product of a University of Houston education and a reflection of what makes the University of Houston so special. That is something I am very proud of, and I hope my fellow alumni are too.”

To celebrate  the Cougar spirit, Katz Coffee is debuting its UH Alumni specialty blends. Check it out here.
