C4 x BIG YELLOW ROAST - THE BARBARA ANN - Dark Roast
Coffee Inspired by the robust flavor of Lance Mann and the Aloha warrior spirit of Charlie Keating.
Origins: Sumatra, Colombia & Brazil
On May 3rd, 2016, Charles Humphrey Keating, IV (C4) gave his life defending his teammates and innocent Chaldean Christians. We made this roast to honor our friend and countrymen, C4. Feel free to drink it, however you would like. We recommend drinking it slowly, enjoying every sip. Life is a precious gift; taking time to ponder and slow down over a cup of coffee is something we are all about here at Big Yellow Coffee. C4 was a Husband, brother, son, friend, frogman, and waterman. The Barbara Ann was Charlie's 'Big Yellow,' a Grand Banks 1986 42', his home for a while. It allowed him direct access to the ocean and the ability to connect with his friends and family in a way only a boat could. Lance and Charlie were collaborators; they understood one another on a deep level and shared their magnanimity and love for others in their thoughts, words, deeds, and actions, and, most of all, their love for life. With this bag of coffee, we are honored to support the memory of Charlie, a life well lived.
