Endless Sea Coffee
Endless Sea Coffee is coffee from around the world, roasted fresh at The Bridge of Storm Lake as a training opportunity for youth. This effort develops vision and practical skills in young people for future job opportunities, and it provides the community with high-quality, fresh, and locally-roasted coffee beans.
"If you want to build a ship, don't drum up the men to gather the wood, divide the work, and give them orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea." - Antoine de Saint-Exupery
The majority of Endless Sea Coffee is single-origin coffee which showcases the unique flavors of its origin:
Village - light roast from Ethiopia, organic
New Day Dawning - light-medium roast from Guatemala, fair-trade, organic
Sobremesa - decaffeinated, medium roast from Mexico, fair-trade, organic
Front Porch - medium-dark roast from Brazil
Storm Lake Blend - dark roast of beans from around the world
Middle school, high school, and college students have the chance to learn the intricacies of coffee roasting as well as accounting, business, promotion, sales, data entry, customer service, and many life skills alongside adult mentors. Through this, skills are developed and youth are given a solid reason to envision a bright vision for themselves.
Most importantly, Endless Sea Coffee provides a way to embrace the "everyday divine" - using routine moments and an ordinary job setting to work alongside young people in a way that brings God glory.
