February Update from our Founders
Some countries just don’t get enough credit. You can read all the “must see” lists you like and you will seldom see a fabulous destination like Georgia mentioned.

Coffee Culture: from Bean to Brew
If our culture has a love affair with any of Earth’s goodies, it’s the aromatic elixir that comes from the roasted, brewed coffee bean. Popular legend says that in the 9th century, an Ethiopian shepherd noticed his goats became particularly exuberant after chewing on the green berries of the Coffea tree; and ran straight to his local pastor.
