Yet here we are: Every bar of Coffee Scrub Soap is loaded with Black Ring's double-brew and coffee grounds. How funny to be drinking their coffee in the morning (sometimes from one of their mugs!), to make soap with their coffee in the afternoon...can you tell I love coffee??
Juliette and Trevor, Black Ring's founders, are as smart and bold as their brew, they are a joy.
I asked them to share a few words about their story:
"Juliette wrangled violent mental patients for a living. Trevor grew up in 90's coffee houses and never outgrew it. The day Juliette was stabbed, we decided that life is short and one should love what they do. We bought a vintage popcorn popper and 10 pounds of green coffee beans. What followed was an whirlwind year of trial, error and smoke alarms. Our passion for specialty coffee has taken us far, and we can't wait to see what the next step is."
