The Tiny Footprint Coffee team is growing!  We just hired two new summer interns to help us out with building our brand, selling coffee, and a ton of other tasks!

Earlier today we sat down with Sam – a senior at the University of Minnesota majoring in Political Science and minoring in Sustainability Studies to discuss school, interests, and what he brings to the Tiny Footprint Coffee team:

* What excites me most about Interning at Tiny Footprint Coffee?

I’m looking forward to learning about all things coffee. (i.e. the roasting process, the tasting/sampling, marketing and selling coffee, etc.) Most of all, I’m excited about engaging in conversation with local community about how they can lower their carbon footprints by buying our coffee

* What are some of your hobbies and other interests?

My hobbies include traveling, reading, and a number of outdoor activities to stimulate my active interests.  I was born and raised in Minnesota and so I thrive in a cold climate where I enjoy ice fishing and snowboarding with friends.  During the warmer months I like to go on long bike rides around Minneapolis and nothing beats a weekend trip to the cabin for long hours spent relaxing by the lake, the perfect place for a delicious cup of coffee.

* What do you hope to bring to Tiny Footprint Coffee?

Through my travel experiences and interests in the fields of Sustainability Studies and Communication, I am certain I possess a set of tools that will be advantageous to helping this brand thrive.  Specifically, my time spent abroad living and studying in Rome, Italy has helped me develop a passion for specialty products such as coffee.  Most of all, I enjoy talking to people about the brand, and I believe that through person-to-person interaction I will be able to make my largest contribution to the brand.

* Do you have a favorite coffee?

In my short time with Tiny Footprint Coffee, I have been able to taste most of the coffees and administered samples of a few of our favorites at the Minneapolis Farmers market.  My favorite coffee so far is the Ethiopian Sidama Dark Roast, which is also by far my favorite roast to market as I can easily help customers distinguish between the specific flavors the Sidama has to offer.

Earlier today we sat down with Krista – a rising senior at the University of Minnesota majoring in Communication Studies and minoring in Management – to discuss school, interests, and what she brings to the Tiny Footprint Coffee team:

 

What excites you most about interning at Tiny Footprint Coffee?
I am most excited to spread the word about our brand and excite people about coffee! I also am looking forward to educating the community about why fair trade organic coffee is important and what it means to be ‘carbon negative.’

 
* What are some of your hobbies and other interests? 
My hobbies include anything and everything outdoors! I am currently on two summer softball leagues and also enjoy running and hiking. I’m passionate about traveling and learning about other cultures. I recently studied abroad in New Zealand and was able to go to Italy for spring break.

 
* What do you hope to bring to Tiny Footprint Coffee?
I hope to bring a unique and fun energy to Tiny Footprint Coffee drawing from my life experiences and using my versatile academic background. I excel specifically in the area of customer relationships and enjoy meeting/conversing with all kinds of people. I also hope to utilize my background in social media and public relations to ignite conversation about Tiny Footprint Coffee!

 
* Do you have a favorite coffee?
So far my favorite coffee has been Ethiopian Light Roast. I have always favored light roast coffee.  I look forward to exploring different types of coffee as I continue my summer here.

We were the first carbon negative coffee company, and now we are the first coffee company to accept Bitcoin – the world’s first virtual currency.

Accepting Bitcoin provides our customers another payment method besides using either PayPal or a Debit/Credit Card.

While the ways you can pay for our coffee are growing, our store on the Shopify platform is staying the same.  This means that our online store will look the same, the only difference is that Bitcoin will be one option as a method of payment.

We here at Tiny Footprint Coffee are excited about this new addition and look forward to interacting with the ever-growing Bitcoin community. You pay Bitcoin, You drink coffee, We plant Trees.
