DazBog Coffee Entrepreneurship Endowed Scholarship

Daz Bog Coffee is the realization of the American dream by two immigrants of the former Soviet Union, Anatoly, and Leonid Yuffa. The dream that is now Daz Bog began on a bitter cold night among the cobblestone streets of Leningrad. The Yuffa family fled Russia to embark on a new and better life of freedom, democracy, and opportunity. Their journey is the legacy of Daz Bog Coffee. By bringing the richness of the Russian heritage and traditions to their quest for roasting only the finest quality Arabica beans from coffee estates around the world. Anatoly and Leonid have found a way to honor the past and enjoy the present in a rich-tasting cup of coffee. This is the Daz Bog way. A way that applauds free expression by bringing out the unique flavor of every bean. A way that celebrates life itself in each and every cup. The Yuffa’s have created this scholarship to assist students at MSU Denver who share their entrepreneurial spirit and to celebrate their new partnership with the University on the Auraria campus.
