Footnotes from barismo

Realized today that four of the full time (read that as people not headed to dwelltime) staff at the roasting operation have been to a coffee producing country and visited a half dozen or more farms a piece.  One being our intrepid green sourcer who has been well traveled the last year.  That experience really helps in understanding what goes into a great cup of coffee or in the least having a perspective of how complex it is when you sit down and think about it.

Dedicated bunch of people if you ask me (including myself in that back patting session!).  The point is that for a tiny little company, it's kind of a cool thing that we have been able to attract such a good crew.
