I love the connection coffee brings to people.  It doesn’t matter how long you have known someone, when you sit down with them and each enjoy a cup of coffee, walls come down.  You relax.  It brings a chance to connect with a person on a totally different level than typical day to day encounters.

There is nothing I am more passionate about in this world then my wife and kids, and the “28 Rules for Fathers of Sons” grabbed that heart of mine and squeezed it!

Mission Arabica is more than a coffee business to me – it’s a legacy.  To my children it is a legacy to not only dream big, but to take the shot and try and accomplish those dreams.  To the villages and communities we impact – a legacy of hope and a bright future.  Those legacies always drives me forward to do my best.

The phrase “Life Changing” gets thrown around a lot, life changing product – life changing experience – etc.  However, few things really create significant change in people’s lives.  However, I am proud to state that at Mission Arabica, we are legitimately changing the lives of third world villages and farmers across the globe for the better by teaching them to grow and sell high quality coffee.  So when we say we are selling Life Changing Coffee – we mean it.
