Relationships are important to @blackboardcoffee. Founder Nick Pearce explains "Having some connection to the people that grow their coffee and knowing that everyone in the supply chain is winning and producing quality is what’s important to us.” Along with the knowledge of being a part of the specialty coffee movement and serving the coffees they want to drink, the team also get joy from selfishly enjoying a really good cup of coffee and knowing the amount of effort that has gone into producing just that one cup.
