Some families cook or decorate or craft. Others drink merrily and watch “A Christmas Story” marathon style. And still others, well we’ll leave that one alone.
The Handsome family, however, throws down. With a half gallon of delicious organic whole milk and fierce love of sport, the team stepped behind the bar and gave it their all to a healthy hum of goading and encouragement.
Winners won’t be named but our lead roaster, Mr. Matthew Borg is rumored to have properly humiliated the best of us. Good going Matt.
Whether it’s about giving good gift or having a holiday spirit that refuses to be tamed we can’t really be sure, but we were downright tickled designing these special edition gift boxes. Handmade maple with burned branding, notNeutral mugs with burnished gold? Hell, it doesn’t get a whole lot more Handsome than that.
With only an engraved cupping spoon and a yen for adventure, our handsome roaster (have you seen him?!) Charlie Habegger makes his way through Africa.
What began as a prize trip from Cafe Imports (for being such a stand-up guy and stellar barista) will take Charlie to 9 factories around Kenya including Kagumoini, which produced the extraordinary coffee on our current line-up. He has visited Dorman’s, the main exporter in Kenya, and the Nairobi auction house.
You can follow Charlie on Instagram as he cups his way around Africa and heads out on safari. @brainofcharlie @handsomeroaster
