My beautiful, brilliant friend Elaine Gale wrote this article for the Sacramento Bee about where some of their local coffee comes from…and the labor involved…here’s a sip:

Chaves wants consumers to know that every bean you drink comes from a timeline equivalent to the birth of a child: nine months from blooming to picking.

I am so glad to have a great local roasting company, Brother Bear’s Coffee, in Yellow Springs. Otherwise I would have to move out to Sacramento and shack up with Elaine, which, come to think of it, might be kind of fun.
