Keeping Caffeinated student Mauricio (Ari) Meza runs a coffee plantation in El Salvador and is always concerned that we have enough Joe to keep the Torah flowing over the internet. His most recent shipment of artisanal beans arrived with a very distinguished messenger – Ambassador of the State of Israel to El Salvador.


Ari wrote to us: “The bag has a painting by the very famous Salvadorean artist Fernando Llort. On one of the bags of coffee has a picture of my great-grandparents.”


The Hon. Shmulik Bass called Rabbi Saks to arrange the hand-off during his recent return to Jerusalem for the Foreign Ministry’s Conference of Ambassadors. The coffee arrived in decorative bag featuring local design of El Salvador. Thanks Ari!
