Palo Alto Firefighters Association

Firefighter Lee Taylor has been growing peppers in the fire station backyard since 1994. After each harvest, he would make his famous and zesty pepper sauce, which quickly became a hot commodity. After making the original for many years the firefighters wanted more heat and the XX Habanero and XXX Ghost versions were created. Using the highest quality ingredients, Lee has crafted the simplest ingredient list into complex, full flavor sauces that stand on their own and pair well with other foods. All profits go to Palo Alto Firefighters Charitable Fund. The fund supports local high school students with scholarships as well as supporting various community-based non-profits.

Café Kreyol

All our coffees are Direct Trade from farm to cup, and graded by licensed Q graders on staff. Farmers are then paid based on cupping scores, and rarity of their coffee. Consequently our coffee farmers make about 300% higher wages than the Fair Trade minimum. Click the button to find out more about our commitment to transparency.
