Many people need an extra boost to get going in the morning.
Mighty Missouri Coffee in Bismarck has been brewing up that extra kick since the company's founding in 2013.
Waking up with a fresh cup of joe is more than just another way to get your caffeine fix. Brian Jackson says the brew is a sensory experience that brings back memories.
"And I thought, man if this what you had the morning you were going on your hunt or something or fishing. Your personal adventure. Then that Monday when you come back to the office, and have the same coffee it's like 'oh, I'm right back there,'" said Brian Jackson, owner, Mighty Missouri Coffee Co.
Jackson is basing his business off this idea.
"I was on Lake Sakawea like all the time - and my favorite thing to do. I just always dreamed of you know, being in marketing and communications, how I could tie a product to the experience of the adventure that's North Dakota. Just be loud and proud about that.
The concept is capturing the attention of Google. They've named Mighty Missouri Coffee Company as a representative for the state in their annual economic report.
"The very first thing I did when I started was I had some musician friends and I just asked if we could play some music together and put it on YouTube so it kind of used Google, Youtube to get this out there. Hey, there's a new coffee around and if you want to try it, great," said Jackson.
It's a big recognition for the small roasting shop that embodies the spirit of North Dakota.
The company recently announced a partnership with D.C. Bagels to open a storefront inside Epic Sports. The storefront will have bagels, sandwiches and a full coffee espresso menu.
