The Quest for the Perfect Coffee Bean
Posted on January 7, 2020
We invite you to join our founder, Laird Hamilton, for an epic journey to the Andes Mountains of Peru to meet with our farmers who produce some of the best coffee beans in the world.
Enjoy the video series recapping Laird's journey below.
The journey from bean to cup is no short ride. In early 2019 Laird planned a trip to Peru to surf the legendary Puerto Chicama waves and visit the coffee farms where we source our beans. It was an honor to meet the local farmers and witness the passion they have for their work.
