Andrew is to be commended for being so dedicated to providing a great tasting coffee, but also to caring about the welfare of the those that grow and provide the coffee.

Congrats to Andrew Kopplin for being a great coffee maker and an excellent coffee entrepreneur. I hope more will follow his footsteps and create more coffee communities.

According to the post Kopplin's Coffee should be totally yummy. Too bad it's so far from Canada, but I'll keep that name in mind.

Kopplin's is a good example of the right way to run a business. Helping to support other local businesses is a great way to lend your support, and stick together as a community. It's a shame that there wasn't a lot more business owners that could follow this example. Too many businesses nowadays think nothing of setting up shop in an area where there are smaller businesses, and will force them to close down rather than support them. All due respect to Andrew for showing support to other business owners, and not only thinking of himself.

It's great to hear about fellow coffee enthusiasts around the world. We sometimes get a bad rep and are labeled as 'snobs', but that is really only reserved for a select few. For the most part, we lovers of specialty coffee are kind folk.

As mentioned above, I agree with you that the best coffee is hugely influenced by the coffee beans we use. And we need to roast them in the right way carefully. Great coffee always starts with very great beans, and roast them very lightly. I still think the coffee beans bought directly from the production market is the best, I do not buy any coffee beans on e-commence. Use the right beans and the best coffee machine, I believe we could produce much better coffee flovour.

I would love having one in Canada :(. But I will plan a future trip just to have a closer look. Thanks for he info.
