PURPOSE OF THIS BLOG

Deepen your coffee knowledge with our blog posts. Every month we will post a new article that will thoroughly analyze a specific topic of the coffee industry. The goal is to appreciate the hard work that goes behind our daily brews.

As we sip on our perfectly brewed coffee early in the morning, it's easy to take for granted the effort behind getting those coffee beans to the comfort of our homes. In fact, brewing our beloved drink is just the tip of the iceberg. The quality and delicious flavors of the final product begins at the farm. Dedicated growers and coffee pickers pour their heart, sweat and tears into the fertile ground to produce the best beans possible. Every step from there on (shipping, roasting, brewing, etc...) has the responsibility of preserving the fruits of that labor.

Here at Ixkanul Coffee we are committed to shinning a light on all the heroes along the way. Through our blog posts we hope to share all the caffeinated knowledge possible so that we can cherish every sip of this magnificent dark elixir we call coffee.
