Mountain trails are prime right now! #optoutside #trailrunning #running #timetoplay

Amazingly fresh teas continue to arrive weekly! This Imperial Grade Tie Guan Yin from the 2018 spring harvest is tasting really good today - floral and cooling, perfect for today's hot spring weather. #tea #oolong #directtrade #gongfucha #baristalife #specialtycoffee

Pushing hard into the weekend like... Stoked the mountain paths are open! #ldp #longboard #pushculture #colorado

Getting it done on the big hillz. Full summer mode - light and fast. #mountainrunning #skyrunning #trailrunning #timetoplay

This is such good coffee, I'm so bummed it is already gone (except for the two bags left on the shelf)! Grown at the exact same altitude I'm sitting at, the sweet aromatics and mandarin/caramel profile make this one of the best Peruvian coffees I've had. Until next time Finca el Gavilan! #peru #coffee #specialtycoffee #baristalife #camposcoffee #boulder

Pasque flowers at 11,500'. One of the first signs of spring in the high country, Pasque flowers are actually highly toxic to humans... but not ants and other insects who rely on their flowering for an early source of nectar. Natives who I have worked with have told me how you can use the flowers for treating certain illnesses and for inducing childbirth. #seenonmyrun #trailrunning #knowyourflowers #traditionalmedicine

When trying new teas, it is important to not only look at aroma, mouthfeel, dry leaf, wet leaf, and longevity, but also the qi and how it resonates with the body. Here Andrew is meditating on how a newly arrived 2008 Tieguanyin oolong "feels". So far the verdict is good - stimulating but mellow at the same time. #tea #gongfucha #oolong #baristalife #specialtycoffee

Still digging the rainy dawn patrol, but let's get some sun back soon! #trailrunning #springrain #running

Stoked for these two - they are off to Europe to adventure for two months. As a "boss" it is hard to let ace employees go, but it also feels good to be able to offer them a safe place and jobs when they come back. Drink wine, eat cheese, and do some European sh@t! You always have a place at the 'Dent. #livelife #europeanadventures #needtohiresomeone

Got out and bombed the Loveland to Bakerville path yesterday. Slowed down a little clip - form is getting better! #downhill #longboard #kook #getafterit

Starting Friday morning of right! Been digging this gesha/caturra mix from La Espana in Colombia. Real nice profile with a perfectly balanced juicy, sweet, acidic flavor. Probably around for only another week! #coffee #colombia #baristalife #boulder #cupofexcellence #camposcoffee

Ran to the top of another mountain today (14,278'). Killer time, perfect conditions, solid outing - things are shaping up nicely! #mountainrunning #runuphill #timetoplay #skyrunning
