Who is Behind Top of the Mornin Brand?
The man behind the Top of the Mornin Brand is Sean William McLoughlin, better known as JackSepticEye. If you don’t know who JackSepticEye is, here is a quick summary of who this legend is.

- He has around 13 billion lifetime views.

JackSepticEye is an Irish YouTuber and is considered one of the most iconic YouTube creators ever. He joined YouTube on February 24, 2007, but he did not begin uploading his videos until 2012 November. He began working and uploading on his channel posting gameplay videos under the name JackSepticEye.
It was only until 2013 when PewDiePie (Swedish YouTuber and comedian) mentioned him that his channel began to gain an upsurge of subscribers from his original 2,500 to 15,000 in just a span of four days. From there it was continuous growth and success.
Story Behind the Name JackSepticEye?
When Sean was still young, his mother used to call him Jack as a nickname. When he was still young, he got into an accident playing football causing him to get an eye injury. The eye injury was bad that it got infected. From then, his friends from school started calling him Septiceye.
Apparently, the name stuck and his friends just placed together Septiceye and Jack (his childhood nickname) and thus the birth of now his famous alias, JackSepticEye.

Top of the Mornin Coffee Beans
The coffee beans that they sell can either be bought as whole beans or pre-grounded depending on the buyer’s preference.

The reason why Top of the Mornin prefers family-owned farms is that they want to create a deeper connection with them and know more about their story.
Top of the Mornin’s current blend is a specialty grade, Colombia single-origin bean which is 100% organic.
