Who we are...... by Kandi
It was my desire to have a coffee roasting business in Ligonier Valley for many years. I discovered a transportable roaster and knew that “now was the time”. My partner, Dave was crazy enough to agree to the idea and “so it began”. Our business was established in June, 2010
We ordered the roaster, made with all U.S.A. parts, from a small company out west, traveling nine days round trip to pick it up. It was quite the adventure--- as I’m sure the business will be too.
Our intention is to offer quality coffee that is fresh roasted. This makes all the difference in taste, as our increasing number of coffee “fans” can attest to. To maintain peak freshness, the beans are roasted after they are ordered.
Since our first event, Back to the Garden Market, “just down the road” from us, we’ve brewed and sold coffee at many festivals and markets. Along with purchasing direct from us….our coffee is sold at various other businesses from Rector to Pittsburgh with more in the works. A list is posted. Other businesses have expressed interest and we are receiving a lot of phone and e-mail orders. The positive response is very encouraging.
We hope that once you try our coffee you’ll taste the difference too and become a valued customer and friend as well!!

There is always local produce from various farms
Barb and Joy are there to sell organic herbs, produce, baked goods and other "green products" not to mention Joy's Bella Hoops.
Here is Dave, the Master Roaster, showing off his skills roasting some organic Sumatra coffee beans. Below that is a photo of our Old Linn Run Roastery tent with bags of fresh roasted coffee beans, iced and hot coffee + more. Just to let you know....we're trying to be as "green" also. Our coffee is organically grown, the creamer, cinnamon is too + we have raw brown sugar, stevia and agave nectar for sweetening. We also use ecotainer coffee cups etc.
