  1. Spro 'n' Study Playlist

    We've all been there. You're cramming for an exam or trying to meet a deadline but you just can't get in the zone. Besides slamming 3 cups of coffee, we like to throw in a pair of headphones and listen to some instrumental-ish tunes. That's why we've compiled this sweeeet playlist of songs, because we care about you (and your exams/deadlines) <3 

    Happy studying ya'll!

  2. Brewing Video: Aeropress

    We're back with another brewing video and this time we've got the Aeropress! This brewing device is lightweight and made of plastic, which makes it perfect for hiking or camping. When you're not hitting the trails, the Aeropress is a quick and easy way to make a single cup of coffee at home. If you're looking for some hands-on coffee training, check out some of our Home Brewing classes at The Foundry. Happy brewing!

  3. Origin Story- Ethiopia

    Small Washing Station in Yirgacheffe 

    Sam, our Director of Coffee, recently made his way to southern Ethiopia to explore the Gedeo coffee-growing region. This process wasn’t easy—four days air time, five days on the ground, and approximately 30 driving hours—but it was worth it. Along his way, Sam was able to check out a few new farms, strengthen existing relationships, and experience the birthplace of coffee.

    Anytime you travel you have to expect some sort of jet lag, but what Sam didn’t realize is that not only was he 8 hours ahead of his normal time zone but he had, in fact, traveled back in time to March of 2010! An interesting thing about Ethiopia is that, while we in the US use the Gregorian calendar, they use the Coptic calendar which is about 7 to 8 years behind ours.

  5. Corporate Gift Giving

    As we look towards the 2017 Holiday season, gift-giving can seem like a daunting task, both personally and professionally. An important thing to remember is that, while it may seem overwhelming amidst end of the year tasks, giving a corporate gift can bring about good business both internally and externally. 

    Business relationships can benefit immensely from intentional, well thought-out gift giving. Clients and customers will remember your company fondly when you take the time to give them a great gift. Existing client relationships will be solidified and your brand image will strengthen in the eyes of your new clients when you take the time to show them you care. When you give gifts to your employees, you are telling them that you value the work the have put in throughout the year. Whether the gift be big or... continue reading →
