j u m p

We are three 8 2 5 days from completing our commitment to be faithful to the current standard of leaving one's workplace.  We have customers, bags, sealers, motivation, and so far, the blessing of the Lord on this business.  We are thrilled to be on our way.  
I feel like I am coming up for air after 13 years in the coffee industry.  Since my first cup of coffee in maybe 1991(?) served by a dude in a mohawk in Lockport IL., I have been seeking counter culture.  It took me many years of conforming to revolt against it.  
anyhow, we want to have fun, roast really great coffees and impact lives on a daily basis, either by providing freaked out cups of coffee to folks who want it, and joining the symbiotic chain of quality that starts in the dirt.  
We sure do love you all and appreciate your love and support.

I haven't commented in a while, but have to say, Congratulations! We are thrilled for you and praying for you and doing all we can to get the word out. But, you have three things going for you that will make you successful, the Lord, Passion, and Quality. Foundations of success right there. Not to mention a product that has addictive qualities : ) Can't wait to see you guys!!!!
