Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

We recently wrote a review of a coffee from Cuvee Coffee, a roaster out of Spicewood, Texas. The coffee we discussed was the El Salvador Santa Rita Peaberry. Mike McKim, the owner of Cuvee Coffee, just got back from a trip to Finca Santa Rita, the very farm where the coffee came from, and the company sent us this video documenting the experience.

The tour of the farm and the philosophy of the growers shows what goes into just one cup of coffee. The passion of Jose Antonio Salaverria in the production quality and standards of processing on this farm are astounding. We want to meet him in person now, and after this video, you may want to, too.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
