In it's essence, we were explaining both his story and the personalities of those that would be representing his coffees. Both Gustavo and those he met gained from the experience in a lot of ways. We feel like he came away with a clear understanding for the strong community that exists here, not just the excitement, but truly the sincerity behind it.

For us, the experience was a reaffirmation to keep working hard and moving forward with big ideas. We've been blessed by good fortune to find people along the way who understand us and get excited about coffee the way we do. After years of hearing the critics, many people are coming around to the same seriousness we feel about coffee. We feel like Gustavo is one of those people and are looking forward to working with him in the years to come.
