A Sustainable Business Model

When one drinks a cup a coffee we rarely think about the people who picked the fruit.  Coffee is grown in remote areas in developing countries where these people live under difficult circumstances.   Unfortunately, there are unscrupulous people in the coffee business that exploit these people in the name of profit.

I’ve made a conscious decision to search out coffee importers that see value in paying a fair price for coffee beans and invest in these communities to create employment, raise family income and reduce poverty.  I believe this is a sustainable business practice. 

Our Guatemalan Huehuetengo Santiago is purchased from a coffee importer that is committed to a sustainable business model.   This is a small but important step in the right direction for a sustainable business model.

Keep It Fresh!

Keep It Fresh!

Opening up a bag of freshly roasted coffee beans and smelling its delicious aromas is one of life’s simple pleasures.  Unfortunately, its freshness is fleeing.    For peak freshness it has a life span of 2 to 3 weeks.

To maintain your beans freshness is simple.  You want to decrease air movement, limit temperature fluctuations, and avoid exposure to light.  Here’s a simple solution: a jar with a lid.  A mason jar, colored glass with a large mouth is ideal.  There’s no need for fancy gizmos.
