Seven Seas Roasting Company
Since we started this company, my appreciation and respect for other small companies has dramatically changed. I understand so much of the basic groundwork that has to be done to run a company. Even though we are still small scale compared to some of these companies, it is encouraging to see where we could be in such a short time. In this spirit, we have worked hard to develop meaningful relationships with the owners of smaller, quality companies. If you haven't already forgotten, we did a collaboration with Local Skateshop from Lakeside and we're just getting started.
Seven Seas Roasting Company is a not-so-small coffee company from San Diego. I've only recently started really getting into drinking and learning about coffee, but damn they roast a nice bean. The founder, Eric, served over 5 years in the U.S. Navy and has the world in mind. He and his team have traveled the world searching for the greatest coffee on the planet all while supporting great causes along the way. They meet the farmers, learn the process and stay hands on as their project evolves into the movement it is. This year, they opened their first flagship location in South Park, San Diego where they serve delicious coffee & tea. They've got an incredible team running the shop, even roasting beans in house so you can see the process for yourself. They also have some of their hard goods for sale in the shop including mugs, canteens, growlers, skateboards, etc. When you visit, make sure to pick up a bag of coffee while you're at it so you can have it at home.
Sad I didn't get a photo of my latte art, but I was so excited to drink it. Sneak peek of what we worked on with them there in the last photo. Go see it for yourself at their flagship location, open daily from 6am-2pm (for now).
