Who we are, what we do, and why we do. The beginning of all things coffee at Spoon UChicago.
We are writing for Spoon Magazine at the University of Chicago! Spoon recently went national over summer, and are now running a fully revamped and awesome site. They’re trying to create a community of food loving college students (much like ourselves), and we find their articles just fascinating.
dotCross writes a small column in the Food for Thought section (insightful musings about food) about coffee and how to use coffee to enrich your college life. Head on over, subscribe to Spoon, and wait for our weekly articles! While you’re waiting, you should also read the other other articles on there too.
We already have some articles on from summer, but keep a look out for new ones!
We have 5 bags of Counter Culture Coffee to give away! The Banko Gotiti (Ethiopia), Tsheya (DR Congo), Baroida (Papua New Guinea) and the Finca Nueva Armenia (Guatemala).
Want to bring one of them home? Share your morning coffee with us!
Option 1) post a picture of your morning coffee to the dotCross Coffee Project wall
Option 2) Instagram your morning coffee and hashtag #dotcrosscoffee
*The coffees are whole beans, which means you need access to a grinder to use them.
**The Finca Neuva Armenia is a decaf, and a gosh darn good one. It’s been our go-to late night coffee!

I’ve nary seen a coffee industry person who is paying such attention to detail in a presentation to the general public. Tim Wendelboe does it pretty well though, and goes through the entire coffee supply chain right from the moment of planting. If you’ve got 30 minutes, check this out.
