One day in the Fall of 2012 we were backpacking northern India’s Kangra Valley near Dharamasala – a place known for steep roads, fantastic mountain treks, and of course, being the home of the Dalai Lama. For hours we followed our Nepalese guide (see photo) high into the remote, tranquil and challenging Himalayan landscape. The altitude was humbling, and the sun was bright. Then, almost like a mirage, far from and high above civilization, we happened upon a small, stone-built café. In this most unlikely place we rested and enjoyed cups of fresh brewed coffee and tea on a stone patio that overlooked the breathtaking, sprawling valley. Absolutely amazing!
Our obsession to create a sublime coffee experience that we could have whenever and wherever the mood strikes was born that day. We began seeking top-notch specialty grade Arabica beans from around the world. Our always curious and well-trained team roasted in small batches to elicit each bean’s optimal flavor profile. Then we combined this great roasted coffee with really cool single serving pouches to create a uniquely delicious and convenient pour over experience.
