Make Amazing Coffee Everyday

Could Coffee be the Future of California’s Sustainable Crops?

Jay Ruskey of Goodland Organics with his rare varietal named “Leroy”


We gathered at the beautiful Los Angeles Public Library to discuss the journey of the bean from seed to cup. From the role of organic farming and the livelihood of producers, to trends in curating the consumer’s palate, the nuances of this beloved beverage have never been so complex.

The panel discussion titled, “From the Ground Up: Sustainable Coffee Culture” was moderated by Peter Giuliano of the Specialty Coffee Association and included panelists Alexandra Katona-Carroll, program manager of the Coffee Quality Institute; Jay Ruskey, owner of Good Land Organics and Angel Orozco, owner & roaster of Cafecito Organico.

“Los Angeles has one of the most vibrant coffee scenes in the country at the moment. ”
– Peter Guiliano
