Thomas Hübbe and Larissa Leitner
Thomas Hübbe is from Curitiba, Brazil, where he grew up loving the rainforest. Larissa Leitner was raised in both Germany and the US. Beer, food, and fate brought them together. In Europe, Larissa loved the way supermarkets stocked seasonally available honey varieties from around the world. The immensity of flavors, colors, and textures always amazed her. American grocery stores, on the other hand, are quite uniform in their honey offerings, reflecting very different thinking about beekeeping. The couple combined their knowledge and experience, learned a lot more together, and went into the socially engaged honey business. They got married, too, so this is a 100% sweet story.
