|I've been dying to get my hands on some chalk markers and finally got a set. They're GREAT!|

A couple of weeks ago I contacted Mayorga Coffee, a local coffee roaster and asked them for their empty coffee sacks. I was so grateful when they said I could take as many as I needed.
When I stopped by I got to see a bit of their enterprise, meet some of the players and left with a trunk full of coffee sacks that once held coffee from Peru. Since then I've learned a bit more about their practices and their mission and am quite impressed.
Since I left with those coffee sacks, I've made a few new french press cozy designs which are now in the shop.
