Made in small batches by: Ben Young of Guide Coffee

Ben Young is our favorite kind of Renaissance man - the kind who not only masters a string of complex careers and hobbies, but also weaves those talents into something sublimely delicious for the rest of us. As a flight commander in the Air Force, Ben traveled the world and fell in love with coffee. He drank it, brewed it and once back stateside, invested in industrial equipment and learned how to roast it. Along the way he also studied graphic design which came in handy when he started Guide and needed a logo, packaging and all that jazz. Ben sources green beans from discerning importers who work directly with small farms and cooperatives in Africa and Central America. Among many admirable practices, they guarantee farmers are paid prices above fair trade standards. Ben's guiding us to good places with this coffee and we're more than happy to follow.
