A Commencement Speech for the Class of 2014

By Kristen Mercure


Today, we stand before you with a message from the future.  We are proud of your work, but there is much more to be done.  You have passed every test, surmounted very obstacle, and even learned to prime.  In this perseverance, you have shown wisdom and a keen sense of style.  We are proud of you, Class of 2014, and place much hope in your success. 

Now, you stand at a great precipice, about to embark on a remarkable journey.  In this journey, most will struggle, but you?  You will not, as long as you remember one thing: Brew the Love™.  All other things will follow.  The world is your oyster and the possibilities are endless.

Wherever you may end up – may it be Hawaii, Colombia, or chilly Nantucket – bring happiness with you, one cup at a time.  Share and learn.  Embrace new experiences, but never forget the old lest you forget the joy of simplicity, at the touch of a button. There is dark magic in the world, but also bursts of sweetness.  As you leave these hallowed halls and enter the real world, take with you these lessons and a legacy.  A legacy of caring and trust and respect; and always refill the water reservoir when it’s empty.

Congratulations class of 2014.  We did it!
