is a new specialty coffee supply company, forging relationships between leading roasters and the daily realities at coffee origin. Right now in Calarcá, Colombia, they are planning work on a new project that could help transform the lives of coffee farmers in the region, by improving the coffee they produce and facilitating better access to stable, growing income. This project has big dreams, and because the guy at the center of it is a millennial westerner—New Zealander Matt Graylee—he’s using that most archetypical of millennial mechanisms to make those dreams a reality: he’s funding the mill on Kickstarter.
