Thank you Steven Smith, for helping us get started with Symposium Coffee.  We both were carving out new ideas back then.  I remember when we first started, you helped me hand load the boxes in my car, put our tea combination together, and trained us well.  I'll never forget the story of "The road to Kandy."  

You were always generous to us and gave us fresh ideas.  You always wanted us to succeed.  You wanted people to have an experience with your tea.  I wish I could have shaken your hand one more time and said thank you in person.  Many relationships have been brought together at Symposium over a cup of your tea but even more through the generosity of your life.  Thank you.


Steven Smith is the founder of Steven Smith Teamaker.  He passed away on March 23rd at age 65.
