Show Notes

Today is the first part of a two-part interview with Rolando Monterroso of Spokes Cafe in Guatemala. Roland is one of our personal heroes. He roasts and brews world-class coffee, has an amazing business, and mentors foster children who are aging out of the foster care system, helping them transition into work and life. He’s one of the most giving people we know and wise beyond his years.

In this interview, you’ll learn:

  • How Rolando got into the coffee business and got a free coffee roaster!
  • Why he believes coffee is so important
  • What his business means to him and to his community
