Coffee trees, which are actually more like tall bushes, are pruned short though they can grow to be over 25 feet tall.

December 3rd, 2022

Have you ever been in an extended funk where no matter how many massages you got, it just didn’t change your crabby mood? It’s so easy to get crabby.

A Sustainable Future for Coffee

December 2nd, 2022

One of the major issues in the coffee industry is sustainability. In every aspect and area of the business—from the farm to cup—there is room for growth when it comes to energy and waste management.

The art of being a budtender is making customers feel comfortable and excited about purchasing cannabis. There are many elements that dispensaries provide to make these emotions happen: flowering house plants, relaxing music, local artwork, a shop dog, and much more.
