About Us

Our Story

While traveling by bicycle in South America in 2017 , two friends (Dave and Adam) discovered their passion for coffee. After visiting several coffee and chocolate fincas in Ecuador and Colombia they realized how universal sharing a cup of coffee with strangers can create the most memorable moments. The seed for BigCupofCoffee.com was planted. 

BigCupofCoffee.com was born with the intention of creating a virtual community space to provide honest and open tips, reviews, and information about brewing high quality coffee at home.
