Initiative Coffee Company 2

This year at LexiCon-IL we were lucky enough to have the Initiative Coffee Company join us and caffeinate our gamers. According to their website:

At Initiative Coffee Company, we believe in working from the ground up.  The partnerships we make allow us to hand select our own roast. We hand make our own syrups.  We even do our build outs on our own.

Initiative Coffee Company has a passion for three things, coffee, games, and community. We’d like to be a part of your community. Your next private event, or public festival is the next place we want to be.

How does it taste?

I don’t personally drink coffee, so I bought a bag for my wife who does. Here is her review:

When your husband makes a career (literally) of going to and running game conventions, you become familiar with receiving gifts purchased at these conventions. T shirts, jewelry, small notebooks — my thoughtful husband has brought them all home for me.

But what you really need when you are the mother of two with a demanding job is coffee. So I was super excited when Andy brought me this freshly ground coffee home from Lexicon.

The coffee from Initiative Coffee Company is solid. I enjoyed the medium roast, which is lighter than my usual Folgers classic roast. My first cup, I used 1 tbsp per cup of water. On day two, I doubled it and liked the stronger flavor.

Andy got to see the coffee being ground! When you open the bag, you see right away that this is not the flawless coffee from a factory. This is course, hearty coffee! The smell is amazing and you really can’t beat the freshness of ground-yesterday-flavor.

Two thumbs up! -Jamie

Last year I dipped my toe into the con hosting pool. I prepped and planned for months, and was rewarded with about a foot or more of snow on the day of the event. Oh well, such is life. People had fun, and we ran a lot of games in spite of the weather. This year I’m trying again!
