That is actually what my wife said last night as we left Belfast…

I’m not sure I’ve ever had heroes but over the past 5+ years Steve Leighton has inspired a developing passion within me via his coffee first and then most recently, his stories of the coffee world and the farmers he meets. For a long time I’d not paid attention to the source of the coffee we drink… many people don’t and that’s fine I guess but, when stories connect with your heart often you can’t help but change your perspective.

Colin Harmon and 3fe are a part of this as well.

Last night we listened intently to two guys who love what they do and who inspire others to love coffee… I mean, Established was full of people who gave up a Friday evening to listen to two men talk about coffee! Here in Northern Ireland, it’s amazing to see a community forming and growing…

I’m not going to summarise their story/stories, they tell them much better.

Part of what we started this web presence/community thing for was to connect with people like Colin & Steve and to listen and learn… to drink better coffee and also to understand the entire world of coffee better. It was also great to say hello to some local coffee folks… I need to pinch myself and remind people that I don’t work in coffee so, for those who have taken me seriously I am genuinely humbled and grateful for the time you give us.

The beard helps…

Last night was an exciting chapter for us. That’s all!
