Hello Hello!  We are very excited about this month, it will be the best one yet.   You’re going to learn much more about the roasters this month we hope.  Order by Feb. 15th, 2015 to receive these three roasters in your box.

Enderly Coffee

Established in 2012, Enderly Coffee is the love inspired dream of teachers and co-owners Becky and Tony Santoro.  Being central in their story, Becky and Tony fell in love over coffee and rely on it daily to keep them going through their days in the classroom.  Their last 10 years have been filled with visits to local coffee shops around the country and romantic dinners with not wine, but fresh brewed coffee and tiramisu.

Enderly Coffee is family owned and truly values bringing justice to our world and community.  That is why they have partnered directly with farmers who believe in bringing the same justice to their local communities.  A portion of every purchase goes to support community development (through www.hyaets.org) in their Charlotte neighborhood, Enderly Park.  Not only do we get to have some of their delicious coffee, but we can support a good cause.  Not bad!

Larry’s Beans

Larry’s Beans is happily committed to blending and roasting innovative uniquely delicious coffees — and making the world a better place. 100% of our coffee is Fair Trade, Shade Grown, and Organic, all slow-roasted to bring out every note of indigenous flavor.  Their  green-o-vated facilities use passive solar construction, active solar systems, radiant floors, zoned heating, composting, and rainwater harvesting to minimize our impact on this awesome planet.

Raised in the land of espresso bars and local roasters, Larry grew up with love for coffee and an appreciation for the nuance that make one cup more interesting than another. He headed to the Southeast to attend graduate school in economics, but soon got sidetracked by his obsession with coffee, working as a roaster in Raleigh’s first coffee house and then starting his own coffee house and roastery. But his love of roasting soon led him to focus full time on the roasting business. From the start, he was all about taking time with his roasts and treating blends like his own drinkable art form. He wasn’t just about good coffee. He was about unique coffee.

 

Reposo Coffee Roasters

Reposo is the Spanish word for “rest.” Think Respite.  Their slogan is pretty straightforward:

WE LOVE COFFEE
AND WE LOVE PEOPLE
SO WE MICROROAST COFFEE FOR PEOPLE
TO ENJOY LIKE WE DO

I like it.  You don’t have to have a crazy story to do something you enjoy.  They are a husband and wife team based in Fuquay-Varina who simply love roasting quality coffee for people and helping those in need.  Every bit of profit they make goes to someone who needs it more than them in their community.  We are proud to support businesses like this, and hope you guys enjoy the fact that you are enjoying great coffee AND helping others at the same time.
