The Coffee Ride

October 27, 2017 Posted in: Community, Events

Heading out this morning for my morning “coffee ride”. Luckily, Fridays in the workplace typically have become the “casual day” or “dress down day”. Hopefully the week’s projects are almost finished and you can put a stamp on them. (Not sure if some know how to use a stamp anymore). The Friday morning “coffee ride” is…

Forged In Nature

September 16, 2017 Posted in: Environment, Fundraising, Local

Looking back and reminiscing on all my expeditions I realize each one has taught me life lessons. They have been preparing me to deal with hard times and not just mine but to help give strength to the ones I love through theirs as well. This last trip we had an amazing team, that came…

This is not just an article about a building or a business, it’s an article about the caffeinated soul of this brand and years of love over this magic bean we call coffee.

The Lost Creek

December 12, 2016 Posted in: Fundraising, News & Media

It’s a hot, balmy afternoon in August and I just got home from work. I needed to check my email, which at times can be a process because as a Waterkeeper, you have several email accounts. Some are set up for information, some are set up to report pollution and others are set up for…

Decision-Making and the Actions of a B Corporation

November 30, 2016 Posted in: B-Corporation

Perhaps one of the most exciting parts about being a B-Corporation is the company we keep. More often than not, the missions these companies take on are larger than life and are often done in a way that rarely attracts much attention. Because doing good for the sake that it is the right thing to…

Staff Favorite: Hario V60

October 24, 2016 Posted in: Brewing, Coffee

My alarm goes off. I get out of bed. What’s my first thought? Oh yes, start boiling water so I can brew my morning coffee. That’s how I start most days, making a delicious cup of coffee with my Hario V60. In my mind, there’s no better way to brew a single cup of coffee…

Cooperative Coffees: A Coffee Family

October 5, 2016 Posted in: Coffee

When you think of what a family is, what is your first initial thought? Maybe your mom, dad, a sister or a brother? The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines family as a “specific group of people that may be made up of partners, children, parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents.” Although there are many definitions of what…

Discovering the Chemex

April 7, 2016 Posted in: Coffee

What is a Chemex? And how exactly does it work with coffee? About a month ago, I had absolutely no idea what this glass teepee-shaped device was nor how it worked, until a fellow co-worker showed me. He was preparing a Chemex demonstration for a local group at our cafe in Rosemary Beach one day….

Espresso Cortado

February 15, 2016 Posted in: Coffee

Sometimes going to a café can be rather overwhelming. There are a ton of drinks that are titled “Traditional” but often more than not, there’s no information on these drinks unless you ask for it. Even then there’s more confusion because coming from a standpoint where you don’t know what anything is except that coffee…

Whole Greater Than Its Parts

February 11, 2016 Posted in: Events, Fundraising

Running 40 miles is an absurd distance. Just consider for a moment what 40 miles is. That is, on average, 80,000 steps or 211,200 feet. If the average person started walking that distance, it would take about 13 hours to complete. For the 40 mile run I am referring to, unlike other long distance races,…

B-Corp and Me

February 2, 2016 Posted in: B-Corporation, Coffee, Fundraising

B-Corp and Me I’m selfish and that is why I love the B-Corp system. To help someone else brings me happiness, no matter how minor. Opening a door for a stranger to volunteering my time for a local initiative. Roll with me for a bit longer, I’ll do my best to confuse you more on…
