We're going to be movie stars!

Greetings Everyone!

Most of you probably know by now I'm a motorcyclist. Several months ago, meteorologists were saying how we were going to have a warmer and dryer winter this year. I know we need the rain but COME ON! A friend sent me a cartoon the other day saying I was suffering from PMS (Parked Motorcycle Syndrome). I digress...

Lot's of things happening this week. Our new logo travel mugs arrived yesterday and I'm so proud of the way they turned out! Not only do they look great but they're a great design, functionally. Insulated stainless steel and slim enough to fit smaller hands as well as vehicle cup holders.

Yesterday we were visited by a couple of film makers who produce documentaries focusing on small businesses and, they want to feature St. Johns Coffee Roasters in Season Two. Sometime before Christmas, they'll be in the shop filming for what will ultimately air sometime after the first of the new year. I guess I'll need to buy a beret and new sunglasses. :) Anyway, it's pretty exciting! I will let you know when the show airs.

The Travel Presses and Espro Presses are proving to be popular items as well. It's looking like I'm going to have to order more of both these items. We still have some in stock but they're selling  well, as they should.

 Amidst all of  this, we've been busy roasting and roasting and  roasting. Our shelves are stocked as well as those  of the grocery stores who offer our coffees. Some of  the coffees I've been drinking this week are the  Honduran, the Ethiopian Sidamo and the new  coffee from Java. So good!

 

 

Time for more jazz -

George Fendel Presents:  Mike Palter and Lynne Jackson Concert

Is it cabaret? Well, yes.  Is it jazz?  Also yes!   Call it what you like but what you may expect to hear is simply the world's best singing team.  Period.   Internationally known, and award winning Lynne Jackson plays piano and sings, and hubby Mike Palter plays bass and sings.  And together they celebrate the great American Songbook like no one else.  If you love the music of composers with names like Berlin, Kern, Gershwin, Ellington, Porter, Rodgers, Mancini, Legrand and Mandel,  Lynne and Mike are a must !

And on Sunday December 13th, we're going to hold a benefit here at the shop. My son, who is a ballet dancer, attends a performing arts high school called Arts & Communications Magnet Academy. The dancers from their dance department, Dance West, will be traveling to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania next Spring to compete in the National High School Dance Competition and are raising funds to defray the expenses for this trip. So on Sunday December 13th, we will donate 15% of the days sales to go toward this effort.

The shop is beginning to look pretty festive. Bestow has a variety of holiday wreaths available,  both in traditional styles as well as something more unique. 

 

I think that's about it for this week. I hope everyone has a great weekend and keeps the coffee flowing.

Many thanks,

Mount & Crew
