It all started with Jay-Z. While on holiday in Croatia back in 2013, Grace had a dream where she was talking to Jigga about her business plans, and he told her “You have to call your business Penny & Meriwether.” When she woke up, she bought pennyandmeriwether.com and held onto it for the next 7 years, waiting for the right time.
Pete founded sister company Clockwork Espresso in 2014, where he designed PUSH – the world’s most precise coffee tamper. To meet customers’ demand for customization and branding, Penny & Meriwether was born.
