Hidden in the solitude and silence of mountain wilderness, you’ll find the Monks of Mount Carmel. They are a monastic, cloistered Roman Catholic community founded in Wyoming near Yellowstone National Park. With a love for God, a Carmelite monk lives his life in the vows of obedience, chastity, and poverty for the Holy Roman Catholic Church and for the entire world.
The Carmelite Monks operate a small batch coffee roaster and sell through their online gourmet coffee bean store. They offer a variety of roasts, flavors and a special coffee of the month. Even new, fun offerings like Monk-Shots.
It’s their drinkware line that really got our attention. It’s there you’ll learn that it’s a long standing tradition that Carmelites drink coffee using both hands in thanksgiving for the fruits of the harvest. For that you need a beautiful, exquisitely detailed, 5-star rated double-handled mug.
Happy Valentine’s Day! May your day be full of mystic love. Pat
