Dear Maria,
I just wanted to send a big thank you for the coffee tour this morning. I really valued the knowledge you imparted to the group. From meeting you today I could see and feel the energy and hard work you put into what you do. I really appreciated your passion towards quality and specialty coffee, and supporting local businesses.
