Elevate Your Java Experience

Having reached the bottom of my espresso stash, I stopped at a gourmet store near the office that I hoped would carry my favorite brand, namely, illy. However, since it hosts a Starbuck's cafe inside, my choices were limited. The only non-Starbucks coffee on the shelf turned out to be a fair-trade offering from Higher Grounds Trading Company. I tried the Mexican Mut Vitz dark roast tonight and it lives up to the claims; smoky, robust with a dark chocolate finish. Now not only can I refuel from a closer vendor, but I can help preserve the Mayan culture in the highlands of Chiapas, Mexico.
