It has been a busy year so far and a lot of positive things have been happening.  I joined Aspect Coffee Collective and got trained on their Probat roaster and signed up with Buckman Coffee Factory to roast on their Proaster roasting machine.  Between the two, I’ve been able to step up production and provide coffee at more events.  Triple Crown Coffee supplied the coffee for ALDHA-W rucks, and spent a recent Saturday in the Montbell store in NW Portland.  Coming up, I’ll be taking coffee to the Outdoor Retailer show in Salt Lake City in July partnering with Crown Trails Headwear, and I’ll be back at Pacific Crest Trail days in August.  In addition to finding more events, I finally got labels thus finishing the packaging for the coffee.  The progress this year continues to motivate me to move forward and its exciting to see it come together.
