The first – of course – was to roast quality single origin coffees from around the world that would make even the most discerning coffee drinkers come back for another cup. The second, and perhaps most dear to us, was to educate on and encourage the thoughtful selection, preparation, and consumption of coffee. Coffee has made a tremendous journey to be
It’s almost hard to believe, and yet here we are, launching our e-commerce platform as a legitimate coffee roasting business. We couldn’t have dreamed, when we first dipped our toes into the proverbial ocean that is specialty coffee, that it would one day lead us here.
