Respecting The Bean

At Red Whale Coffee, coffee is serious business.  They seek to create high quality coffee beans for all to enjoy. Relationships with communities from Indonesia, Mexico, South America, and Africa allow them to develop a uniquely diverse cup of coffee. Although their network is vast, their roots originate in California.

Owner and Chief Coffee Geek, Sean Boyd, comes from a long line of Boyds that have been at the forefront of premium and specialty commodities. At a young age, he spent time growing and distributing exceptional produce to restaurants across Southern California. Sean’s relationship with cuisine evolved throughout the multitude of successful bistros and bars that were founded by his father.

Sean has been working with coffee since 2003. After being captivated by his first taste of premium coffee, he has become an expert. From master courses in roasting to honing his palate as a licensed Q Grader, Sean quickly accumulated copious accolades and certifications form the Specialty Coffee Association of America and now shares his expertise here in San Rafael.

At Great Chefs and Wineries you can enjoy, and maybe even learn something new, at Red Whale Coffee’s full espresso and coffee bar.

PRESSED

 

This year at Great Chefs and Wineries, Lifehouse is proud to host twenty-six of the finest wineries in the North Bay. In October of last year, the North bay was plagued by devastating fires but the mantra going around is true- “The love in the air is thicker than the smoke.” Although, the smoke has long now faded, the community continues to band together. Over $18 million has been raised to support individuals affected by the fires. In the spirit of community, this year Lifehouse will be donating 3% of the proceeds from Great Chefs and Wineries 2018 to the North Bay Fire Relief Fund.
