This is my story….
Ten years ago I was alone, lacking a purpose, identity, or a place to call home. I was suicidal and depressed.
Then one day someone offered to buy me my first cup of coffee, and everything changed. I’ve told many people that coffee has the ability to save people’s lives; some of them laughed at me, others humored me with a nod, but few actually believed the words I spoke.
My story, and the stories of the people found in this book, will prove the doubters wrong once and for all. Coffee, and the communities found surrounding coffee shops, truly can make the world a better place. We brew the way to a better world one simple cup of kindness at a time.
My name is Tim Stiffler-Dean, and I’d like to invite you to explore this world with me.
