“When it comes to making coffee, most of the work is done by the farm, specifically the farmers and their workers,” said Paul Kurtz, Owner of Hemisphere Coffee Roasters. “I wanted to create a process that rewarded those hardworking individuals that pour their heart and soul into what they do.”
Kurtz created the company after having worked in a mission-focused agency for decades. Through this experience he learned handouts often foster dependency, and from this decided he wanted to create something based on more mutually compatible relationships. Today Hemisphere Coffee Roasters is a business that does just that.
Bluegrass artist Audie Blaylock, of Audie Blaylock and Redline joined Kurtz on the show to talk about their newest line of coffee Redline Roast. Band members, who are self-professed coffee aficionados, worked with the company to create a line of coffee which marries their shared passion for an honest product born from tradition and hard work.
