Come check out our newest arrival from Colombia.
It's the Colombia FTO Tolima.
 
Rich in notes of cocoa, caramel and toffee. Well balanced with a delicious sweetness. I've been drinking it all morning and it has quickly become one of my new favorites.

Well, sort of...
Despite the fact there is still oodles and gobs of snow on the ground and it's not going anywhere soon, we are planning on opening the shop tomorrow at 7 am.
We will be ready with plenty of fresh roasted organic and fair trade coffees along with amazing French pastries and bagels.
Be there!

I thought this was over!

 I thought the crazy weather of the past  few weeks was exhausted, only to be  followed by 12 inches of snow last  night.

Here's the view out the rear doors of our shop.


As many of you already know, the shop is closed today but we plan on being back tomorrow morning, rarin' to go with plenty of fresh roasted organic and fair trade coffees (our roaster made it in today in spite of the elements). We'll also have a fresh supply of amazing French pastries from St. Honorè Boulangerie and bagels from Spielman Bagel Company.

Our apologies for any inconvenience and we appreciate your understanding.

Another one bites the dust!
