Handsome Coffee, which you may have heard was recently bought by Blue Bottle Coffee, has officially signed off on Tumblr. It’s nice to hear directly from the team, and it’s also a peak inside the past with an eye toward the future. I copied the bit below because it’s nice to know that Blue Bottle has (apparently) incorporated the talent and will hopefully be better for it. Click through for the full post.
I, along with so many of the same folks who made Handsome great, am honored and excited to start this next chapter of sharing Blue Bottle with L.A. As we approach the transition, we’re all busy settling into new roles here: I’ve stepped into a role as the company’s Director of Training; Charlie Habegger, Handsome’s head of coffee, has joined Blue Bottle’s green coffee buying team; and Kristine Chong, who helped throw so many incredible Handsome events, is now leading events nationwide for Blue Bottle. That’s not all, either. Our roasters, baristas, wholesale department and production crew are all coming along – and looking forward to the next step. I’m thrilled to be a part of this new family, to reach for new goals, and to tackle new struggles.
