Fast Company Magazine did an article on our friends Doug and Barb Garrott of Orphan Espresso and the development of their new hand grinder, the Lido 2.
Our co-founder Kyle Anderson, shared his knowledge and resources with Doug & Barb to help them make it to the next step in their method of production. They had some very nice words to say about him!
