For those of you who have stumbled upon this site, and haven't a clue who I am (or to those who don't know a lot about my life these days) here's a little about me...My name is Marlee. I live in sunny NorCal. And I am adopting a little one from South Africa. I work as a coffee consultant at Boot Coffee, a stellar  international company with boutique style. We spend our days trotting the globe teaching coffee courses, assisting coffee producers and promoting quality all along the supply chain from farm to cup...and we have a blast doing it! I also like other things besides coffee, like drumming at Red Hill Church, photography and traveling. But coffee consumes a lot of my life. That's why, when I knew in my heart that international adoption was for me, I decided to start CHASING MERCY to help offset some of the major expenses. I'm single, so even though I've always wanted to adopt, it wasn't until recently that I began to seriously contemplate it. Check out OUR STORY to learn more. I'm just starting out on this adoption journey. It's a bit daunting and overwhelming at this stage. But I'm not alone, and I'm grateful for that. My friends and family have been so supportive and wonderful. I'm blessed to know, and work with, some of the best coffee industry professionals on the planet! We've come together to make CHASING MERCY happen. So go ahead, buy a bag! I promise you won't be disappointed. You can contact me at marlee.august@gmail.com for more information. ACT JUSTLY, LOVE MERCY, WALK HUMBLY & DRINK COFFEE.
