We're more than just your average coffee company. We also take pride in our mission: employing the developmentally disabled. Our first employee, Erin Baldwin, has Down Syndrome. Although she is challenged, she loved to roast coffee and even has her own roast named after her, Erin's Breakfast Blend. Helping Erin and other like her obtain employment influenced our company motto, "Special Coffee, Roasted by Special People." To further support the developmentally disabled community, a portion of the sales from our Buddy Walk Blend of Coffee is donated to the National Down Syndrome Society. Located in Frederick, Maryland.
