Living the Values: Engagement
Friends in Honduras
Shouts out to Jare, Grace and Chuck for creating space to nurture our relationships with a handful of very talented Honduran coffee farmers and their families. It’s way more fun to feel connected to the people and places you do business with. And FUN, my friends, is very important.

Alex and Marc, our wholesale team, had the privilege of visiting the Karimikui Factory and Run’geto Coop in Kirinyaga last November. Big ups to InterAmerican Green Coffee Importers who hosted the trip, showing us both who and what is involved with getting this coffee ready to leave home.
First, coffee is picked from lots of really small farms who bring harvest to the nearest factory. Then…a ton of other stuff happens - so we just drew you a picture! 🐱🌩

Rebels with a cause
Levi and Michael
Engagement is a Cat & Cloud core value - it’s how we learn, connect, and indulge in new experiences. One way we live this is by sending our team to origin to meet farmers, producers, and taste lots of coffees. Often times, our team will pick a coffee for our menu, too.
Michael Foy and Levi Stiles traveled to Colombia to participate in the Best Cup auction. Unsurprisingly, they went way out of the box and started a bidding war with each other to drive up the final price of the coffee for Jairo Bomba and his family. Their mission? To leave him happier than they found him. Michael, Levi…You are genius goofballs. We love you.
