Humble-y Yours.

Humble was one of the first coffee shops to pique our interest into the wide (and wonderful) world of coffee and we loved the concept that owner Mark Baker envisioned for Humble Bash. He wasn’t interested in making tons of money, rather he was more focused on bringing the community together. How, dare we say, humble.

And judging by the coffee loyalists we spoke to, Baker and his staff had a lot to celebrate on their second birthday. Throughout the entire day, people were either laughing under the chic southwest-inspired lounge area created by @Amyforthelove, bobbing their heads to local bands Red Light Cameras, shopping at the various vendors, such as, Genuine and Ginger and stuffing their faces with delicious Korean tacos from Soobak food truck. All while being well-caffeinated by the awesome baristas serving up cold brew by the buckets.

The vibe transported us right back to LA and it isn’t hard to see why Thrillist named Albuquerque one of the best American cities for creative types (no, seriously, read it here). Slowly, but surely Albuquerque is making a name for itself and its unique community of creatives who are using their talents to put New Mexico on the map as a force to be reckoned with.

We did…just sayin’. Perhaps we need to take heed of Humble’s tagline and “Stay Grounded.” Until then, we’ll keep on supporting and celebrating Baker and his Humble Coffee Company. And if you ever find yourself in the Albuquerque area (Did you read that Thrillist article above?), stop by Humble Coffee Company, grab a latte, take a few Instagram-worthy pictures and make a mental note to come back to celebrate Humble Bash next year. As you can see, Humble Coffee Company may be growing, but it stays true to its humble beginnings and sense of community.
