Valpo Parks "Legends" and "Legendary Friends":
There isn't just good coffee, there's good coffee that comes with the utmost care and dedication. Blackbird Cafe in Valparaiso has been a community favorite for over seven years, and one big contributing factor to their success is their wide range of good, delicious coffee. We recently sat down with Blackbird's co-owner and their Chicago roaster to talk over their love for "single origin" coffee and why it's essential to care about the product.
Good news is everyone on the LIFE network! Outside of our own talented team, we accept good news and events from all Northwest Indiana nonprofits, schools, teams, churches, organizations and more, plus we have some great partners who use our networks to share some good news about themselves as well. But who are these people?
