Idou Coffee Co. is a new coffee roaster based out of Boalsburg, Pa (just down the road from State College); they turn one year old this December! Idou was started by four friends who built their friendship in part because of a mutual love for excellent coffee. As a company, they're committed to roasting delicious coffee in small batches to make sure their customers get the best coffee they can get. Idou offers a growing library of coffee education resources, like these articles about the differences between fair trade and direct trade coffee, what the 'organic' label means in the coffee world, and a guide for those just starting their coffee journey. Idou is also committed to producing socially responsible coffee from farm to cup. They are keenly aware of the global nature of the coffee industry and are doing what they can as a small business to help educate people and work towards a more sustainable coffee culture.
Idou just released these cool Holiday Sample Boxes; these boxes make the perfect gift for coffee explorers and experts alike. It features three, 8oz. bags of hand-selected coffee, a recipe card with curated recipes for each coffee, and a holiday mug sticker. Head over to idoucoffee.co/holidaybox21 to pick one up for you or a loved one!
