Two-Spirit (2S) are gifted among all beings because they transcend the boundaries set by the binaries of male and female.

Cold brew is a great way to enjoy coffee. It's much easier to drink on a hot day, it's less acidic, and it can be flavored during the brewing process. This cold brew blend has been supplemented with chipotle seasoning sourced from Native Seeds/SEARCH. The brewing process takes longer - between 18-24 hours, but most of the work is passive and the results are great.
Spirit Mountain Roasting Co. is a community oriented company. Their community includes not only the pipa, people of the Quechan Nation, but the entire coffee supply chain from seed to cup. They do their part by engaging in direct and fair trade with Indigenous coffee farmers whenever possible. They specifically select coffees which are produced sustainably (organic), exchanged fairly (fair trade), handled correctly (roasted with care), and (they hope) enjoyed thoroughly.
