But First, Coffee Education

You may not realize it, but behind the scenes, coffee shops invest hours of consideration, planning, selection and applied education into the coffee beans they buy and brew. Before your favorite bevy is served, many hands had an impact and many minds had a say in that Instagram-worthy cuppa joe.

Sizzling Summer Storms

Beautiful and breathtaking. Dynamic and dangerous. That is the natural world around us. Here in America, we experience the glorious diversity of nature firsthand.
