Ep 052 – Tony Burlison, owner of Dark Timber Coffee



This week’s guest is Tony Burlison, Owner of Dark Timber Coffee. They specialize in backcountry / backpacking coffee singles (Ascent Packs), with a large emphasis in wildlife and public lands conservation, so a portion of all their sales are donated to organizations that focus on conservation and educating the public on the importance of public lands.

Highlights From This Episode:

Dark Timber Coffee was started in 2017 and is currently available exclusively online but prior to opening Dark Timber, Tony was the master roaster for a major local coffee company for the prior 11 years.
When it comes to public land conservation – There has been a trend more recently of public lands being given or sold to the states or sold to private companies, resulting in increasingly less land for the public to hike, camp, hunt or just enjoy undisturbed natural beauty, like our National Parks.

  • Guest’s word of wisdom: When you are starting off as an entrepreneur and you don’t know where that first dollar is going to come from or you have to pay your employees and vendors before you get paid, don’t look at it as you are working for free, look at it as you are making the initial investment into your company… it’s hard but it’s worth it and it will make you happy if you love what you are doing.
