  1. Wow, looks like a great competition, so comprehensive! Klatch coffee sounds like a great company, I will have to check them out. I am curious about the North American grown coffees, I would be very interested to try them, I’m curious what flavours would come through in the roast. It’s great to see people celebrating high quality coffee and sharing their love and expertise.
