freshly roasted coffee beans

Fresh Face: Palmetto State of Mind
T H E OW N E R A N D O P E R AT O R
of the popular Carolina Soap Works,
Kayla Sansom is branching out with her
newest family-owned venture: Palmetto
State of Mind coffee roasters.
In her own words:
"Our family has been roasting for over
five years and started selling coffee to
the public under the name Palmetto
State of Mind the first weekend of
April this year at Soda City."
"We wanted to roast our coffee so we
could control the freshness, roast to
our exact taste, and experiment with

blending different coffee beans from all
over the world."
"Our beans are purchased directly from
small farms in Ethiopia to ensure the
farmer is paid a fair price," explains
Kayla. "Ethiopia is the birth place of
coffee and has always been our personal
favorite. Coffee from this area has a rich
and creamy dark chocolate aroma."
"When working with beans from a new
origin, we roast several batches at
different levels to determine the best
tasting roast. For example: we roasted
our Ethiopian Limu coffee beans at a

light, medium, medium-dark, and dark
roast. Then we had friends and family
over to try then all. The winner was
medium-dark."
"Customers at Soda City are always
complimenting the taste, saying the
coffee is so rich that they don't need
to add much cream, if any at all."
To discover Palmetto State of Mind,
visit Main Street's Soda City Market
every Saturday, 9 am - 1 pm.
