Meet the Team

Each week, we’ll be introducing you to a member of the Jim’s Organic Coffee Team. Check back here for updates! Of course, we’ll start with Jim…

Name:
Jim

Job Title at Jim’s:
President – but really just a guy who likes coffee.

Hobbies/Interests:
Being outdoors, and spending time with family and the dogs, Mocha and Brew.

Favorite Jim’s Organic Coffee and why:
All of them for different reasons… but if I have to choose —

Guatemalan Lake Atitlan Tzanchaj – both for the work we do with the school there and also because on one of my visits I took my oldest daughter Josephine. Not the mention the coffee is “black forest cake in a cup,” as we refer to it on the cupping table.

Ethiopian Sidamo Nura Korate – for its lemony taste and aroma. While I’ve never visited this farm, the lemon note is what I remember detecting in Ethiopian coffee back in the late 80’s, when I “got it” in terms of what specialty coffee is.

Indonesian Sumatra Takengon  – because I was fortunate to spend some time in Asia in my college years and this is what we drank. Plus the Lake Takengon region is incredible.

But like I said, I like them all!
