When Craig and his wife arrived at our headquarters they had no idea what to expect and by the end of the day, I can honestly say, we became friends.
In August of this year we held our first annual National Coffee Month Contest where the grand prize winner received an all expense paid trip to visit our headquarters + a trip to San Francisco. On December 5th, we were finally able to meet our winner & his amazing wife, in person.
Craig was kind enough to send us a message after the trip.
Our tour was wonderful, we loved the green coffee/ cupping session with Carlos (thanks for the perfectly roasted coffee), and the dinner was amazing! We really felt like honored guests from the moment we were greeted at the door by Susan.
We took Craig & Myriam on a behind-the-scenes kind tour not offered to anyone. They not only were able to see the entire roasting & packaging operation, but we took them way behind-the-scenes for a personal roasting & cupping session.
Here is a sample of their personal tour.
As for their trip to San Francisco, we were a bit worried about the weather but Craig said;
We just missed the rain the whole trip. In Lincoln, it rained overnight, but cleared up for the drive into San Francisco. In SF, it was clear and sunny and looked like it was going to rain right when we got into the airport to leave. Perfect timing!
It was a wonderful experience meeting Craig & Myriam and we had a great time showing off the joint, introducing them to the world of coffee & we wish them all the best in life.
Thanks for hanging out with us, guys.
