Coffee Common + TED

If you haven’t gotten the chance yet, check out This site is dedicated to sharing common values held by the coffee community. They believe that “great coffee requires study, experimentation, craftsmanship, and humility”, along with the idea that coffee is “an experience worth sharing”.

Just this past week Coffee Common chose to launch their brand at TED, which has long been the home of ideas worth spreading. The participating coffee enthusiasts included a variety of roasters and baristas, along with our help to provide the espresso machines, most of the grinders and water towers.

Being at TED was a great time to share information, be in association with everyone there and to support some great partnerships.

A sincere thank you goes out to Coffee Common for their extremely nice post
