“Axios!” (Greek ἄξιος, “worthy of”, “deserving of”, “suitable”) is an acclamation adopted by the Eastern Orthodox Church and confirmed by the faithful at the ordination of Bishops, Priests and Deacons.

Indeed, it is humbling to be declared worthy. To be deemed “worthy” does not belong to these who are ordained as though they’ve earned it but to God who gives it. I don’t think I’m particularly special; no more than anyone else. I am humbled to serve others whether I am hearing their troubles or pouring them a fine cup of coffee.

 That being said, a fine cup of coffee can also be called worthy, of course in a different way. We choose various micro lot coffees that stand out above the rest and roast them for you to experience. We also understand that you too are worthy by virtue of where you come from. So let the worthy experience the worthy, “Axios.”

“Axios!” is our exclusive line of special small batch roasts that are available on a limited basis. That’s why we’re making “Axios!” available as a specialty coffee, hand-selected and roasted by me!


The Flavor? Because these batches are so small, we have even more time to roast them even closer to perfection.

I’m so pleased and excited to share these coffees with you in the coming month.  It is as we say, WORTHY.


 “Axios!”, will also be known as Father’s Choice in our online store. In the coming month our first offering will be available in a 10 oz bag. With it, you’ll receive a little coffee wisdom from me. In the form of a handwritten card I’ll share with you its tasting notes, the origin as well as the best possible way for you to brew it to its full potential.


 “Axios!” will from month-to-month, perhaps even week by week. When you order “Axios!” it’s like receiving a tasty blessing from above. These micro-lots are my absolute favorite and they only reach their deserving potential when I can share them with all of you.

In the coming month I’m traveling to Kentucky.  Looking to get back to my roots a bit, enjoy a needed respite, and savor some beautiful coffee.  Won’t you join me for a cup?
