This web site has previously been used as a way to reach out to coffee aficionados and offer our roasted-when-order coffee beans online. Unique bean offerings and custom roasts became an attractive offer to fans of our beans to experience the various complexities to be found in medium and darker roasts, African beans to Central American beans. And doing this without the snobbery that can sometimes seep into even the most well-intentioned coffee roaster. The “now word”, artisan, has a solid footing in our blueprint. We are proud to have been and still be craftsmen of a trade, focused on perfection, not sales.
It became apparent early on that this online coffee project would need to grow, and after a year of the Café de los Muertos family living on the West Coast, it was time to move back to our home, Raleigh NC. Now we seek a space where we can share our passion for coffee with our neighbors, our city. This web site will now serve to be a documentary of sorts, we plan on updating the site as the search for a coffee house space continues. From finding like-minded vendors to help us fulfill the dream, to the downfalls and stalls of starting our own company… for the first time! We hope to connect with our neighbors on every level, to offer support, education, quality goods, and an always accepting environment. As cheesy as it sounds, as over-quoted as it is, “Life is not about the destination, it is about the journey” is really true.
So the what is the what (Dave Eggers)… What is known is that we will all change as we age. The change we strive for is the change of common good, neighborhood involvement, and quite honestly, damn good coffee. This web site will invariably change as we secure a coffee house space, but for now, the what is a journal.
