There's really nothing quite like a great cup of coffee on a Monday morning--especially my very favorite local selection. Carabello Coffee is located in Newport, Kentucky, where they have a roasterie and craft coffee bar. I make sure to stop in a few times weekly and also keep some beans on hand for a much-needed java fix at my own convenience. What's perhaps most meaningful is how Emily and Justin Carabello have used their business as a means to create change, challenging the norms of fair trade and farmer-direct supply lines, ensuring that the people who grow their coffee can improve and expand their own lives. How inspiring is that? You should check out their story here and you should definitely try their coffee. Trust me, it's worth it!
