Robert Stiller


Green Mountain Coffee Roasters founder Robert Stiller may enjoy a strong cup of coffee, but he also appreciates the more subtle art of meditation. In fact, there is a special meditation room built into the Vermont headquarters of Stiller’s company! “Meditation helps develop your abilities to focus better and to accomplish your tasks,” he explains. “If you have a meditation practice, you can be much more effective in a meeting.” Focus, perspective, and calm under pressure have certainly contributed to both Stiller’s success and that of his company—benefits that far outweigh those of a stiff cup of joe!
