In the early days of Rancho Gordo, we received a call from the Google kitchens. Google happily feeds all of its employees with incredible food via many cafes and restautants on the Google campus. We've been sending them heirloom beans for many years now.
Yesterday I drove with Molly and Julio from Napa to Mountain View to participate in their Top of the Crops day where we met with the chefs, showcased our products and answered questions.
It was a lot of fun meeting the chefs and the other vendors. We were able to give them a sneak preview of one of our new, upcoming products and it seemed to knock their socks off. We'll let you know more about it soon but needless to say, I was really pleased by the reaction.
We left Mountain View at 4:20 p.m. which was perfect for hitting all kinds of rush hour traffic and even being able to use the carpool lanes when we had them, we didn't roll into Napa until 7 p.m. Thank goodness for my car stereo and Lila Downs.
