There are numerous people who deserve a round of thanks for assisting us with this website. Without them this website would still be a figment of our imagination.
The following is a short list of people we would like to take the opportunity to thank for their invaluable help. They have extended their support by permitting us to use their resources, by reviewing our site’s content for accuracy, and simply by being there when we needed them. If we have inadvertently forgotten to mention anyone by name, we sincerely apologise!
Thanks to all our families whose patience and love have allowed us to pursue this project. Your feedback, optimism, and encouragement have proven priceless. Thank you for paying for Internet access and putting up with long, sleepless nights.
We would like to thank our coaches, Mr. Poirier and Mrs. Calderwood, for their unwavering support throughout this project. Despite their busy schedules, they were always there for us, offering technical and editorial support, guidance, and feedback at every step along the way.
Their reviews helped us maintain clarity, pedagogical sense, and user friendliness throughout our site's construction. We owe them more than we can say for their patience, persistence, insight and support.
A very large “thank-you” to both of you for your dedication and constant motivation! Your ability to envision this final product and to guide, assist, and motivate us through the long, demanding process is greatly appreciated!
We would like to extend our thanks to both Dr. & Mrs. Pereira for their invaluable assistance with this project. Dr. and Mrs. Pereira are the owners of Joes’ Sustainable Farm, near the Western Ghats, in India’s Karnataka District. The majority of the photographs that you will see on our website were taken from this absolutely amazing coffee farm. We would also like to thank them for their articles, interviews, and prompt feedback to our coffee related questions.
The strong visual impact the site presents would simply not have been possible without their input.
We would be remiss without acknowledging our friends and cohorts whom we have know for many years. You all know who you are, but we’ll name just few: Johnny, Deepali, Phuong and Nga.

It has been a truly great experience! Thank you for opening that door.
