If you are anything like us, you require copious amounts of sweet, sweet coffee to get through all you have to do in the day (not to mention the night). But stopping for constant cups at the neighborhood java house really hits your wallet, not to mention cutting into your time. That’s why this year we decided to brew at home. There are a dizzying number of methods but, ultimately, they all come down to the quality of the beans. Enter Thread Coffee’s community supported coffee subscription: pay in advance and you get an affordable weekly pick up of fresh, locally roasted beans at several locations (including Red Emma’s, the host of the project). Plus, it’s ethically sourced, so you can vibrate your brain into a productive dimension guilt-free!
