Thank You!

The simple desire of wanting to know “about someone’s creative work is a gift.

For many years now, I have been integrating a passion for coffee with a passion for people and their stories. My calling in life has been to provide spiritual guidance and coaching to mostly teenagers and young adults. For the past 10 years, I have been spending time with students at the University of Cincinnati while intimately exploring the rabbit hole that is specialty “third wave” craft artisan local (and whatever other cool adjective I may have missed) coffee!

Recently, the urge has been bubbling up within me to share some of the stories, lessons, mistakes, and mysteries I have learned. So I hope you will join me every other week or so for a brief conversation, interview, exploration or rant based on these two major parts of my vocation: coffee and people.

Nice!

So sure, it's the least you can do and be called a Patron...but it's worth quite a bit in my book and  because a $1 pledge is so much better than nothing...you're getting a Twitter mention all to yourself as well...plus all the patron-only content of course.
Dude!
$5 or more per month

Ok...$5 a month says: Hey, what you’re doing is actually kind of valuable. I‘m diggin’ it. Those who make this “Dude!” effort at support are going to get celebrated via social media but also receive one free bag of Pneuma Coffee for Christmas! That's right, you've become part of the family. Thank You!

I’m impressed. $15/month is venturing into the land of self sacrifice. That means a lot and I’m going to send you a free bag of some fresh-roasted Pneuma Coffee 2-3 times a year. Cause that’s what I do 1-2 days a week...I turn little raw green coffee seeds into beautiful brownish aromatic and tasty little flavor bombs. Just let me know if you want it ground or whole bean.

You Rock!
$30 or more per month only 16 left

Wow! If you pledge that much over the next 25 years, you will have given about $9000 to this project/ministry. It would be hard to thank you adequately, but you’re going to get more than a sample...you’ll get a 12oz bag of Pneuma Coffee (Roaster’s Choice) quarterly  with the occasional bonus swag (like a branded pen, sticker, hot wheels, mug, etc). Thank you!

Super!
$50 or more per month

Ok, you’re ridiculously supportive and you’re going to get a free bag o’beans every other month! Plus I’m going to “out” you on social media for the generous philanthropist that you are. Thank you so much!

Divine!
$100 or more per month only 9 left

Let’s just jump to the ultimate reward. If you have this much money to invest each month, you’re going to get monthly deliveries of Pneuma Coffee-Roaster's Choice along with occasional swag items, the Pneuma Roasting Experience (a tour and interactive roast session at our shop with a coffee tasting and all kinds of coffee knowledge being dropped). You will also be mentioned in the acknowledgements of Chris’ forthcoming book about coffee and community.

Goals
$428 of $500 per month
Once we reach the milestone of $500 per month in pledges, we will begin releasing weekly videos. The video content will alternate each week between 3 of our featured tags: coffee, campus ministry, and complexity.
