A few years ago, I’d asked Ashley to meet me for coffee at a local Starbucks. She kindly said that she’d love to, but asked if we could meet somewhere else. I was curious about the change of location--maybe it was the taste of the coffee? The ambience? I wasn’t sure. When we met up, I asked about her desire to change locations, and she informed me that she and her boyfriend were trying to only eat at local restaurants. [...]

So, we got rid of the car. Within three months our jobs transitioned and we realized the difficulty of living in a city with one car and the sacrifices that we had to [...]

I was recently in San Francisco visiting a dear friend. As usual we made a few runs for coffee together, but as she practiced for her upcoming performance I snuck off on my own and bought coffee from one of my favorite roasters. Coffee is one of my food obsessions, and San Francisco is a good place to indulge. When traveling in a different city I love to eat great food, drink good coffee, and develop favorites. Finding these new [...]

Eric and Krista, the founders of FreshGround Roasting, are people close to my heart. While living in Illinois they became the bedrock of my community as mentors, guides, and friends that felt more like family. Over the course of years I watched them become increasingly passionate about drinking quality coffee and the origins of each cup. I became aware of the endless creativity of local businesses as we toured chocolate, oil, and cheese shops in their town of Geneva, Illinois. [...]
