Finding a name for a coffee is a journey. Sometimes it's easy and just comes, and other times, well, you gotta work for it. When I found this single-origin Honduras, it was just so comforting, warming, and really lovely, but for the life of me, I could not think of a name. I searched the web for famous Honduras musicians or songs in hopes of finding something that reflected the taste and profile of the coffee. I decided to clear my mind and go exercise. As I hopped on the elliptical and was looking at what I would watch while exercising, Netflix had just come out with a new documentary about Dolly Parton. Now let’s get something on the record. I love Dolly! She is an absolutely amazing person and uber talented artist, so I was excited to watch this. The further I dove into the documentary, the more I became enamored with her. She came off so sweet, inspiring, incredibly brave and an exceptionally lovely human being. As I continued to watch, Dolly started talking about a few of her songs and then she spoke about Islands in The Stream. It literally hit me right there, this coffee was just like Dolly and how amazing to honor her and her song with this coffee! To make things even cooler and reinforce the universe is most definitely connected, after we announced the release of Islands in The Stream, three days later Dolly donated $1 million dollars to help fund research to find a vaccine for Covid. You might say this was serendipitous.
