We are passionate about Coffee
Crazy Goat was started with a simple philosophy - understand the tradition of coffee, and serve the best, most “responsible” product we can find in the US. Over time Crazy Goat has served local, regional and national products – refusing to be brand loyal – rather focusing on the “fair trade” and “seasonality” of coffee in order to provide the community we serve a world-class artisan product.
At the Goat we take our time to create a customized drink that is handcrafted and personalized for you. This type of quality takes time as we hope to achieve perfection in every cup. We may not have a drive-thru or a beverage-making assembly line, but we provide a quality beverage and ultimately shouldn't that be what really matters?
What do crazy goats have to do with coffee?
As most people know, goats will eat just about anything. Just ask Kaldi, the Ethiopian goatherd of legend. As the story goes, sometime in the 800s AD in the Kaffa region of Ethiopia, Kaldi noticed his goat herd grazing on the cherry-red berries of one of the native shrubs, dancing about, from one shrub to another.
After some observation, Kaldi determined that it must have been the berries that were causing his goats to act so crazy. And so, Kaldi decided to try the berries himself. We're guessing they didn't taste very good, but that he soon discovered their powerful effect, and the peculiar euphoria they seemed to incite.
Years later, the seeds contained within Kaldi's berries would be cultivated, roasted, ground, and brewed into what we now know as coffee. We don't know about you, but we'd like to raise our coffee mugs in hearty thanks to Kaldi and his crazy goats!
