In 1865, Atsum N. Effengood was born to Thisum and Purmien Effengood. His precise geographic origin is still a bit of a mystery, however, there were several steerage tickets found in Atsum's journal from Queensland, Ireland and Lisbon, Portugal. Based on dates on the tickets and theories from historians, it's assumed Atsum left Queensland and traveled to Lisbon prior to heading West across the Atlantic to New York City.
In the journal, Atsum writes about dreaming up ideas while sipping a dark roasted coffee. We felt naming our dark roast after the year it all began was a nice tip-of-the-hat to a profound dreamer.
