Finding Your Why
Coffee: a superfluous commodity made central by our common addiction. Even for the irreligious, the aroma of the percolation murky liquid awakens the soul before the caffeine has a chance to do its job. Our long to-do list is often made possible by the men and women who produce and purvey this magical beverage.
Whether Tucson is your hometown or you’re new to the Southwest- there is always more to explore- more reasons to love where you live. And we’re here to help you do just that! But it’s important to take time to consider your personal why. Those intrinsic motivations that drive you to love your neighborhood well. Our hope is that we partake of the goodness of Tucson, to breathe in its beauty. We want you to like Tucson, but we also want you to love it. Love in the sacrificial, creative, life-giving sense of the word. And for that we need a good sense of our why.
