Stumptown Coffee Roasters

Posted on

I’ve had the opportunity to drive by coffee farms in Kenya and watch the plants grow out of good earth and roll over green hills. I was thankful for that. This morning I ground some fresh coffee beans from Guatemala and brewed them to my liking while sunlight filtered through the green leaves that surround my house. I was thankful for that too. We recently got to visit Stumptown Coffee Roasters in Brooklyn, NY, and see firsthand how the link between production and consumption can bless the earth as much as her fruits bless us. Somehow, a knowledge of that link makes the coffee taste better. And that’s something to be thankful for too. Take a look at some pictures of our visit, and please consider this your invitation to try a little Stumptown and find one more thing to be thankful for.

    I’m late coming to this post. Great pics and great description of Stumptown. I need to make a pilgrimage there. By the way, if you’re ever in Charleston, check out Black Tap Coffee. Excellent coffee shop and by far the best in SC, if not in the Southeast.
