I drink coffee and think I have found the "gem" of unknown coffee companies. Bongo Java is a company located in, of all places Nashville, TN. They started their own co-op in South America and expanded to Africa and other areas as well. Their coffee is 100% fair trade. Very cool story. Look'em up and no I don't sell it or anything like that. My favorite is the Organic Orgasmic. Anyone else have a great coffee maker other than the typical everyday stuff?
I used to carry a french press in the mountains (and a bag of Peet's), despite the bulk, hassle, and mess. Then a coffee-inclined climbing buddy discovered this: instant coffee that actually tastes like coffee. http://www.starbucks.com/coffee/via
