We love coffee. We love each other. We love to travel. We love learning. When these powers combine we are…(drum roll, please)…COFFEE IN ACTION!! Trumpets blare, the clouds part and angels sing a heavenly choir.

No, no…it is nothing that dramatic. Quite simply: we are two friends on a road trip to learn about coffee, community, and sustainability in the coffee industry.

Starting mid-February, we will be traveling around the US to experience small coffee businesses that are involved in their local community while also contributing to the improvement of the global coffee industry. We are especially interested in environmental sustainability (still working on getting and converting a car to vegetable oil) and social responsibility. Below is a list of the cities we will hit on our journey.

If you know about good coffee shops, important organizations to visit, or people wanting one-day volunteers, please let us know.

Thanks for reading (and wish us luck on our first ever blog!)
