Episode 39: Natalie Van Dusen & Deejay Newell: The Community-Driven Coffee Roasters

Sometimes inspiration for a new idea comes in the most unlikely of places. Such was the case for Natalie Van Dusen.

Natalie discovered the ancient craft of coffee roasting while traveling across Colombia on a motorcycle adventure. Driven by curiosity and a fierce love of coffee, she was inspired by her visit with a farmer, Don Eilas, who not only taught her about the growing process but also invited her into his home to show her how he roasted freshly harvested coffee over an open flame.

Fast forward years later, Natalie and her now co-owner, Deejay (affectionately referred to as her sister) own Treeline Coffee Roasters, a fully formed roastery with two cafes, in Bozeman, MO. But, all of this is about more than just coffee to them. It's a way to create community and be a part of telling lasting stories.

Some people like to hike. Others are legit h-i-k-e-r-s. And there's a big difference.
Shawnté Salabert is the latter. She has hiked the Colorado Trail, Kilimanjaro, the High Sierra, the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), and many other hikes that a mile or so in would make most people turn back. But what makes Shawnté unique is that it's not uncommon for her to turn an incredible hiking adventure into a story. In her words, deserts and mountains – those big locations where one can feel very small – are her favorite places to spend time, and write about. She spent nearly two years hiking and writing about the Pacific Crest Trail... snapping photographs, recording impressions, and hoofing many miles for her book Hiking The Pacific Crest Trail: Southern California, which was released via Mountaineers Books in November 2017. For Shawnté, every day is an adventure. And we certainly can't argue with that.
