THIS MONTH WE SALUTE SCOTT MCMARTIN, FOUNDER, FUNDAMENTAL COFFEE, SEATTLE, WA.
I first met Scott over 20 years ago when he was tasting and buying coffee for Starbucks. A lot has changed since then, but Scott's passion to make/build/brew a better product hasn't. Scott decided not long ago that he and co-founder Tim Kern could build a better mouse trap (or in this case, roast a better coffee bean) on their own. So off they went to show the world how truly great coffee can taste when roasted their way.
So if you're ever in Seattle and are looking to see what coffee roasting is all about, stop by their facility in the SODO district, especially for Fundamental's Friday Coffee Tasting, 10:00 AM - 5:30 PM. Or check out the Fundamental Coffee Facebook page or better yet, order up some of their great beans from the Fundamental Coffee website.
