Everyone knows how great Peet's is, but many don't realize that they were one of the first Bay Area local coffee shops. Alfred Peet started the very first Peet's on the corner of Walnut and Vine Streets in Berkeley, CA. Since that day in 1966, their goal has remained the same - they continually strive to raise the bar for the American coffee industry. And now, by donating their used coffee bags to us, they're helping raise the bar for the floral industry as well!http://www.peets.com/
Cassandra Chen is the amazing woman behind CC Made. After college, Cassandra worked in finance but felt unfulfilled.

Anthem started in a garage, kinda like us (except we didn't even have a garage - it was a dining room!). They then graduated to a small shop on Folsom Street in 2010, and then an even bigger, two story kingdom on Geary Blvd three years later. They've worked hard to become the premiere source for t-shirt printing, screen printing supplies, equipment and services in the bay area - which shows in the super rad sweatshirt they made for us!http://www.anthemprintingsf.com/
Northbound films is rad. Period. They make amazing videos for awesome companies like Back to the Roots, Heiroglyphics, Virgin Unite, Style Seat, Madison Reed, Google, and, of course, us!

And they're seriously amazing, but I think we already covered that!http://www.northboundfilms.com/

They've been donating burlap coffee bags to us since we launched in 2010.http://www.ritualroasters.com/
