Show Notes

Rachel shares with us how two creatives – a photographer and a documentary filmmaker – came up with the idea of starting a coffee farm and how much of their journey has been led by intuition, intention and a deep connection nature, the land, the people, customers, the culture, the coffee – and ultimately a deep connection to self.

This episode explores:

  • How far your “good intentions” can bring you (psst! spoiler: They can get your right to the top!)

  • Why it is important to give every little detail intention & thought and why you want to tell your plants what you want from them

  • How there is only one of you, and how that means you can share your knowledge freely without needing to fear that anyone will ever be able to copy you

  • How a higher price will never be an obstacle if you produce with the intention of producing the highest quality, trusting yourself and valuing your contributions along the way

  • How you know you are in tune and in flow with life when you can consider the trees as your extended family!
