Many thanks to John Langenstein for introducing me to his awesome coffee. Looking back on my emails with him, it seemed like I was terse and standoffish. I don’t know why I come across that way. It probably has something to do with my eagerness to reply very quickly. In my opinion, any time spent crafting an email beyond a certain point is wasted. I want to get back to whoever it is in a hurry. I don’t mean to come off the way I do. My approachability is something on which I pride myself.
But I digress. In initial emails, Langenstein seemed reluctant. I know my emails didn’t ease his mind. I thought that, based on his initial trepidations, I would never receive a package from him. I’m glad that I was sorely mistaken in this assumption. Before long, a package from Langenstein Farms arrived on my doorstep. I had a hard time figuring out what was more beautiful, the packaging or the coffee itself.
One of the awesome things about this project is when I come across a type of coffee that makes me excited about what I’m doing. The 100% Kona from Langenstein Farms definitely fits into that category. Between the addictive flavor of this coffee and it’s enticing aroma, I had a hard time putting this one down. I know you will too if you order a pound or two from them.
You can order coffee from Langenstein Farms through kona-coffee.com. They have many different formations of their coffee available. Each one will surely impress you.
Although Langenstein Farms is one of those companies that doesn’t need my involvement regardless of how big I become, this is a company I’m going to keep my eye on. When a company does coffee right, everyone should stop what they’re doing and pay attention.
A lot of companies make great coffee, so narrowing down the list of possibilities to a chosen few is quite the undertaking. The best way to approach this conundrum is to not compare these companies to each other. Coffee companies share some similarities; however, picking your favorite one is like picking your favorite kid.
Langenstein Farms is in a category all by themselves. Somehow they’re able to produce coffee that’s so simple and complex all at the same time. I don’t know how they do it. I’m just glad that they do.
