“Kindness is about seeing the humanity in people. I always hope that the love and passion emanates through me when I serve. I believe kind actions can speak volumes. I always hope people feel that with me, and that they feel embraced.” This is why kindness can be difficult—it’s different in every situation, and it’s not a trait as much as a way of seeing the world. When you drink Kiana’s coffee, which is from Rwanda and is reminiscent of baking spices and caramel (did we mention it’s perfect for the holidays and pretty much just perfect whenever?!!?) we hope you feel embraced and loved.
What is matchbook coffee project?
The Matchbook Coffee Project pushes the creative bounds of roasters to produce exciting and highly personal coffees. Our intention is to spotlight roasters by allowing them free reign over a coffee—not just through how the coffee roasted, but how the coffee is presented. Roasters will design logos, pick their own merchandise, and have complete say over how they want to communicate their coffee with their audience. Roasting is a highly technical and skilled profession, and through this project we hope to showcase both the unique abilities and tenacious determination each roaster has shown their craft.
