Welcome to Austin Hikes brought to you by Buddy Brew Coffee. Austin grew up on a farm in South Georgia and has always been entranced by the majesty of the outdoors. A few years ago, he went on a day hike in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina and found himself staring out over the seemingly endless waves of peaks stretching into the horizon, and from there the rest is history. You can support Austin's trip by donating to the GoFundMe page linked below. Once his goal of $2,000 is met, the additional funds will be donated to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy and to Clothes 4 Kids.
Austin will be hiking the Appalachian Trail in it's entirety. A whopping 2,189 mile journey, starting from Springer Mountain in Georgia all the way to Mount Katahdin in Maine. Along the way we will be providing images and some details about his travels, the people he meets, and of course the coffee he drinks! Austin was a huge part of the Buddy Brew staff. He is an extremely talented barista and was always ready to take on any task thrown at him. He was always a loyal employee to us and we want to show our gratitude for everything he brought to Buddy Brew. Support Austin's travel by donating to the GoFundMe page below!
Throughout our Travel Blog we will be featuring and sponsoring some great trips from employees, friends, and partners. We love all things coffee. We have learned that the best way to find great coffee is to go find it! Whether it be drinking a great cup in mountains and enjoying tranquility, going to Colombia to source great coffee, or driving around the US trying the plethora of amazing coffees we have here right on our home soil.
Traveling is an important part of life. It's about more than seeing incredible places. It's about your experiences. It's about the people you meet. Your growth as an individual. It's about learning about the beautiful planet we live on and even more than that, it's about learning about yourself.
Last year we went to Colombia to find the world's best coffee. We tried hundreds of coffees and made some great connections. Our appreciation for what we have and the changes we can make in the world grew immensely. Buddy Brew wants to support this state of mind. So we will be updating our blog here with travels ranging from sponsored travels like our Austin Hikes chapters to origin trips around the world and even to our local trips and events in Florida and around the United States. We can't wait to share all of our experiences. Stay tuned to see the incredible places we go and how coffee intertwines with all of our experiences.
