Ahhh......Coffee! The world's most life-giving and legal drug. Coffee makes me awesome, Coffee solves everything, Life begins after my coffee, Coffee-it maintains my sunny personality! (wink, wink, smiley face)
I've always loved coffee, even as a child, my parents fixed me coffee. It was more milk and sugar than coffee then...however I always loved the flavor.
I know we have these "National Day Of ___________ (Fill in the blank). Donut Day, Pizza Day, Beer Day, Acorn Squash Day, Make Your Bed Day (Yes, it is real)...I can go on and on.
Regardless, this is a great day, C-O-F-F-E-E!
So early this morning before I begin roasting, I am enjoying a cup of our Brazil Dark Roast. It's a cloudy day and a sprinkling of light rain every now and then. A perfect morning.
I'm very thankful where I am. I love doing what I do and I hope to continue and grow this tiny little business. I am thankful for this wonderful cup of coffee bean goodness and constantly amazed at how this coffee was planted and raised thousand of miles away, watched over, cared for and then harvested. The farmers that work so tirelessly to deliver a perfect cup to their customers around the world.
To honor National Coffee Day, I am donating money to farmers to plant coffee trees to help build a sustainable environment. To continue the ability to deliver wonderful coffee to my coffee cup each day!
Now...back to my coffee....
