One thing is for certain, the good folks of Land of a Thousand Hills – Roswell's coziest, comfiest coffee stop – live by their motto: Drink Coffee. Do Good.To the folks at Land of a Thousand Hills, the community that a coffee house can offer extends much farther than the doors of the shop. It extends to their roaster, Mike, just fifteen minutes away, and then all the way to Rwanda where Laurent Murindabiguri harvests the seeds from the 5,000 trees on his farm, and where Alex and Manu run their washing station in Ruli. Land of a Thousand Hills works with ‘em directly. “There’s something really sacred about the process of going from seed to cup,” the shop’s Manager Jono tells us. One thing is for certain, the good folks of Land of a Thousand Hills live by their motto: Drink Coffee. Do Good.
We would like to propose that they make an addition to their motto: “Get Cozy.” As it’s impossible not to do so in this Roswell haven. Built out inside a cozy old home with ample comfy seating in every nook and corner – including by the exposed brick fireplace (!), it’s a place that is clearly community-focused. Just ask, the regulars will tell ya – it’s the perfect little place to catch up on work, or with your best friend. By that we mean, it’s not a “to go” kind of coffee shop. Most of the drinks here? They’re served up in mugs. Including the mythical beverage Caramanilla, their caramel and vanilla latté (which is just as decadent as it sounds). Looking for a chillier treat? The Rwandan Chill does just the trick. Think of it as a frozen blended cookie. That, and the sweet flavors of philanthropy in every cup? It doesn’t get sweeter than that, folks.
