Nacho Ordinary Coffee, etc.

Posted By on Tue, Oct 25, 2016 at 12:52 PM

Gary Cluck traveled a lot for his job, and while on the road, he got hooked on good coffee. He joined some clubs, took some classes. Then, he bought his own roaster. He began giving away bags to family and friends, who urged him, "You need to get this to people," he says. 

And so he did. He recently launched Nacho Ordinary Coffee, which sells small-batch coffees online for about $14 per bag. 

Nacho is the family dog. "She's such a sweetheart," Cluck says. "She's not your typical chihuahua."

Cluck says the coffees he offers tend to be medium roast. He will typically offer two coffees from two different countries and never blends.
