Not all of the people on our team drink coffee, but those of us who do are rather passionate about it. There’s something about a really great cup of Joe for us. The aroma, the taste and the kick are awesome. But so is sharing it with a colleague over an idea, a story, a strategy or a challenge. In fact, some of our best ideas as a company have begun with a thoughtful conversation and coffee.
We’re also very big fans of supporting local business and celebrating the grassroots power of entrepreneurship. After all, we are a small business and we are powered by entrepreneurship and innovation.
Not long ago (over a cup of locally roasted coffee, of course), we wondered how we could merge these shared passions in a way that included our clients. That’s where our ‘Let’s have coffee’ idea was born.
We reached out to Cupper’s Coffee and Tea, a Lethbridge business that offers an impressive array of coffees and teas from all over the world. They also import premium green coffee beans and roast them to perfection every day. Sipping Cupper’s freshly roasted coffee is such a sweet indulgence that we’ve adopted a favourite Cupper’s roast as as our own. We call it StreamBean.
The especially-addicted coffee drinkers among us even sip their java from ceramic mugs hand-made by Mike Oleksow. Mike is an artist who lives in the Southern Alberta Rockies. Owner of Muddy Mouse Pottery, he creates gorgeous, one-of-a kind mugs by hand. It’s a beautiful thing.
So beautiful, in fact, that we have decided to share this coffee love with our clients. If you’re a coffee drinker who loves beautiful things, just let us know. We’ll send you a half-pound of our StreamBean. If you decide to book a demo of cumulus™, our online account opening platform, we’ll send you one of Mike’s mugs as well.
