Gobble Gobble Gobble...
what did he say
"Eat me on Thanksgiving day."

or for the vegetarians out there, insert "big ole tofurky, big and fat"

Don't forget to grab a bag of our Pumpkin Pie Spice flavored coffee for your Thanksgiving feast today because starting tomorrow, the roastery will be closed the rest of the week. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

In this time of Thanksgiving we would love to hear from you. What are you thankful for?

We would also like to wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving and hope that you are able to spend time with friends and family this holiday.

Interesting Coffee Fact

Did you know that according to Ricardo Levins Morales's Coffee Calendar, "coffee became a part of Arab weddings, early in its history. Freshly made coffee was poured in front of the bride's feet to please the spirits."

Saul Bolanos: Cafegrafia

Saul Bolanos from Costa Rica developed a photographic process using light sensative emulsion to transfer liquid coffee images onto tiles. Since then he has developed other forms of coffee printing including coffee art masterpieces on coffee filters.

It's incredible. "Coffee Images can also be produced on coffee filter paper. They have the Aroma, Color and Taste of Pure Coffee and are 90% Costa Rican Coffee with 10% humidity. There are no other ingredients. Each Coffee Filter Image is a work of art,
or just put it in your coffee maker and drink your coffee art." *taken from
