David Schnitzer had a goal: to produce great tasting coffee that was organic and Fair Trade Certified. While visiting the Appalachian Trail with family as a kid, David fell in love and was taught lifelong lessons while exploring the great outdoors. Combining these two passions is where it started to get really good.
Residing with his wife and three young boys in Western North Carolina, David started Appalachian Coffee Company, where the trademark is "Grounds for doing good." And with every purchase, you also help do something good. Part of the companies profits go to supporting the Appalachian Trail and raising scholarships for summer campers.

In addition to being a great local entrepreneur, David also happens to be a graduate of Landmark Learning's Wilderness First Responder course. David, from all your friends at Landmark, we would like to say congratulations on a dream realized and best of luck!
