Obviously, Easter is the big holiday on the Christian Calendar this weekend, but did you know that the Patron Saint of Coffee, St. Drogo, has his feast day Saturday, April 16?
A French Saint for Coffee
St. Drogo is a French Saint of shepherds, coffee house owners, coffee house keepers and a litany of others including mentally ill people, mute people, orphans, sick people and unattractive people.
When you work in coffee long enough, you start to get the feeling that we're all just a bunch of misfits trying to do our best. With that in mind, we feel that St. Drogo is a very appropriate saint for the specialty coffee world.
Tug Hill Artisan Roasters wishes everyone a Happy Easter and a Happy St. Drogo's Day!
