We hope you all celebrated National Coffee Day on Tuesday! We sure did, and used the surge of energy to launch our Kickstarter campaign! For many of us, every day is a celebration of our coffee, and we’d be hard-pressed to get our shoes on the right feet without it. But given that the official day to fête our favorite morning beverage was just this week, we’re thinking a special celebration is in order. What better way to honor the roasted bean than by getting your hands on a new, hand-harvested, farm-to-cup American coffee made in Kona, Hawaii, by a California winemaker-turned-coffee farmer? (Hint: there IS no better way).
Carta Coffee Merchants is a new start-up farm and coffee venture dedicated to producing the finest 100 percent Kona coffee expressions. Carta Coffee just launched a Kickstarter campaign to offer coffee lovers an exclusive chance to preorder its first release of artisan roasts (and to help with planting those 2,000 new coffee trees!). Foodies take note: Carta founder Scott Burr is using his winemaking background to present some really innovative techniques to his customers that no one else is doing, including side-by-side tasting samplers showcasing two different production processes.
Already excited about bringing this taste of Hawaii home with you? Well, it gets better: Carta is offering tablehopper readers a chance to double their coffee rewards. Back Carta’s Kickstarter campaign with $25 or more and email proof of your donation to tablehopper. The first 10 supporters will automatically win extra Carta Coffee, along with a Carta Coffee Merchants mug, T-shirt, French press, or other gift item. The extra coffee alone is valued at roughly $40!
