Ally Walsh and Casey Wojtalewicz, Canyon Coffee

Los Angeles, CA

Ally Walsh and Casey Wojtalewicz are more than their brand, Canyon Coffee, named after Beachwood Canyon, the storied Hollywood neighborhood in Los Angeles where they first met. Partners in both business and life, the two live, work, and create seamlessly.
Both have worked in creative industries and have their hands in many pots simultaneously. Ally has been with Wilhelmina Models for 11 years and counting. Casey, a former touring musician, does freelance search engine optimization for like-minded businesses and builds furniture on the side. The are both all-in, all of the time and they do the whole thing with a kind of grace and ease that feels very much like the Los Angeles hum that is so much at the core of their brand. By their own description, they are naturally curious. They travel throughout the year, play music, practice yoga and mindfulness. They consult for other small businesses, read constantly, and take on causes close to their hearts.
