Yesterday we spent the morning with Paul Katzeff of the Thanksgiving Coffee Company in Fort Bragg. The folks at Thanksgiving's motto is "Not Just A Cup of Coffee, but a Just Cup of Coffee." They see coffee as a medium for doing good and have done very well.
After three hours of touring their plant and tasting all sorts of wonderful coffees, we've decided on a specific blend for the Featherbed Railroad (our Bed & Breakfast) and will soon be taking delivery on our special brew.
In addition, we're also going to switch our coffee brewing methods to French presses instead of the typical drip method. French pressing gives the coffee a much better flavor and is also a unique experience for the guests.
I'm hoping folks like this new method of brewing their own coffee and can learn some of the special things that went into the beans getting to their table. All our coffee will be Fair Trade and sustainably grown. In addition, it will be organic, of course.
