Right in our own backyard to Kuju Coffee's home base in San Francisco lives the towering Redwood trees that fill Redwood State Park.
As you can imagine, this State Park holds a special place in our heart and company values.
It was here looking up at the magnificent tall trees, that got us thinking about the hundreds of years it takes for a tree to grow to such magnitude. These tall Redwood Trees got us thinking..... " quality is never instant ™ ".
Nature knows how to take its time and create something magical. If humans could only learn to do the same thing, would the world be a better place?
So, we are here on a mission to get you to ditch the Instant coffee on your trips.
If you are exploring a beautiful place that has grown over hundreds, some thousands of years - you should make every moment you experience in that place quality.
Make moments and memories that matter.

1. Plan Ahead: Planning ahead is always key to reducing stress on any trip. Make sure you've stocked up on food (and coffee!), fuel, and all of the necessary gear you'll need to explore.
If you are new to the camping lifestyle, check out our tips for the first time camper - here.
Additionally, make sure you research any restrictions, closures, weather, and rules within the area. All of these play a factor in making your trip the best it can be!
2. Get the Camping Gear Out: If you are able to enjoy a weekend trip to Redwood State Park, we highly recommend camping out at one of their four campsites and/or seven backcountry sites. It will give you the chance to experience both the sunrise and sunsets within the park.
Designated Campites consist of Jedediah Smith, Mill Creek, Elk Prairie and Gold Bluffs Beach. You can find out more about these campsites here.
Backcountry campsite include Little Bald Hills Camp, DeMartin Camp, Flint Ridge, Gold Bluff's Beach, Elam Camp, 44 Camp, and Redwood Creek Gravel Bar. You can find out more about these campsite here.
If you are planning to stay at a campsite, you will need to make reservations in advance. If you are more of a backcountry dweller you will also need to get a free permit in before your trip.
3. Short on time? Make it a Day Trip!: If you're simply passing through, don't want to camp, or short on time, this park makes a great day trip! Take a scenic drive or hit the trails with your bicycle. It's super rare to find a national park with bike trails, so take advantage of this huge plus!
4. Bring Your Pup!: No matter if you're making a quick trip through or spending a few nights to sleep with giants, you'll be able to have your fellow furry companion nearby in this beautiful park. Dogs are welcome as long as they are kept on leash! Remember LNT practices and pick up after them as well to keep the park as untouched as possible.
