Our grinders and a great new coffee maker

Here is our selection of electric grinders. New for us is the sweet little Bodum Bistro, bottom left, at $110. We decided to carry these with metal, not plastic, bodies, in copper or silver color. Plastic housing models are cheaper but look cheap! The Bodum comes with a 2-year guarantee. We still have a few […]

We will be closed July 2, 3, and 4

To correct an earlier post on Facebook, we will be close July 2, 3, and 4. Back once and for all for this year on July 5. We apologize for any inconvenience, and we hope you find something else to drink–not coffee!–while we are closed.

Free Compost!

We have compost to give away! Coffee grounds make an excellent soil amendment, especially for plants that love slightly acidic soil. The paper filters are fully biodegradable and can be dumped into a pile or bin to go back to nature. Stop in, with your own container, or better yet, call us at 609-4000 to […]

New biscotti, new sign

We had a fine time and talked to lots of people at the Community Arts Center last Saturday, for holiday/Santa gift day. Business is at high […]

Bob on BBC radio

I was interviewed, along with several other coffee people, last week for the BBC Radio 4 “Food Programme,” all about coffee. Here is the show broadcast in the UK on Sept. 4, 2016: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b07sxqt8. That’s about 30 minutes long. Then there is a podcast, with more of me but some 45 minutes long, with a […]

New School Year, New Coffees, Good Old Music

The schools at all levels, including Miami U., are in session again, and Oxford, Ohio has come back from a long, unlively summer. In Brazil, the schools give kids as young as 6 coffee before math classes–and they do better! But I’m not a health pro, so ask your doctor. Seriously, coffee is much better […]
