Project Sunrise at First Watch

Wednesday, April 4, 2018

I've got nothing but coffee on my brain today and with two toddlers running around acting a little cray, I'm sure you can guess why.  It's taking me back to a few months ago when I got to enjoy a delicious cup of Project Sunrise coffee at First Watch.

Project Sunrise is First Watch's new coffee that made its nationwide debut back in January and it's part of a great cause.  This high quality coffee is grown and harvested by a group of women in the Huila region of Columbia.  If you know about how coffee is grown in Columbia, then you know it's mostly dominated by men, but due to civil conflict, the amazing women behind Project Sunrise stepped up and took over to support their families. 

Together, they formed the Mujeres en Cafe organization and strive to grow the highest quality coffee bean.  If that doesn't make you want to head to First Watch asap and try a cup, I don't know what will. 

Seriously though, the coffee really is just as amazing as the women behind it and it pairs perfectly with everything on First Watch's menu.  Trust me...I test tasted a variety of items just to make sure ;)  From the Superfood bowls with whole grain artisan toast topped with almond butter and Maldon sea salt.

To the Million Dollar Bacon (worth every penny) and the Avocado Toast!  Can you believe it was the first time I've tried avocado toast?!  I now know what all the hype is about, especially if you've had it from First Watch. 

They even have the most amazing juices.  You have to try the Kale won't be disappointed!
