Rye So Serious! | Roll With It

Once upon a time there lived a farmer who rarely slept, and night after night he attempted a new remedy with no success.

In desperation he yelled out to the universe, “why have you cursed me!” Thunder clapped back and said “it’s an opportunity!”

The farmer struggled, but continued to search for fulfillment and rest. To pass the time he began tending to coffee cherries, which are grown in the shade. His nocturnal companions thrived under his care, and after nearly seven years they were ready for harvest!

In this time, the farmer had read extensively on rum and was convinced it was the perfect pairing for his coffee cherries. After infusing rum with the coffee for one month, kahlua was born and the farmer finally slept.

Enjoy the good vibes!

  • I started off working for non-profits, then teaching at charter schools in marginalized communities throughout Chicago, Oakland, CA and Portland, Oregon. My passion for learning, teaching and history is undeniable, but I was struggling financially, so I began moonlighting as a bartender just to make ends meet, and unexpectedly fell madly in love with every aspect of the bar business. For my squad and I, it is about so much more than making a great cocktail. It’s about memories, music, history and sharing those moments, ensuring you embrace the present, reflect on the past and securing a bright future.
