The Source

A cup of coffee brings to mind tattooed baristas and fancy espresso machines, and cute little flower designs made out of milk. But there’s so much more to coffee. To actually get that dose of liquid heaven into your hands takes hundreds of hours of work and countless thousands of miles traveled. Every cup of coffee tells a story, many of them involving small family farms in some of the most remote regions of the world. Journey with Darrin Daniel, director of sourcing for Allegro Coffee, to Peru, and experience the adventure behind finding the perfect bean. When you see what goes into getting your coffee from the source, you’ll appreciate your daily jolt that much more.
