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!!

We have been very busy with the weekends at Ligonier Country Market, Music in the Mountains at Ohiopyle etc.
We will be at Stahlstown’s Flax Scutching this entire weekend.
We are happy to announce that Fallingwater Cafe is now serving our coffee too! We think there will be some other clients soon....we hope. :-)
We have donated a basket of items for the silent auction at the Polo Match this Saturday.
We will be brewing our coffee as a donation again at the Loyalhanna Watershed Art Auction, next Saturday. There isn’t any mention of us in the newspaper articles so I thought I should let you know. People have been asking.
We also may be having our coffee served at the Gala for the 75th anniversary of Fallingwater. However, I have not had a confirmation on that yet. It sounds like a wonderful evening!!!
Hope to see you somewhere in our travels or call/e-mail us!!! Thanks!!! kandi & dave

This is certainly a high level overview of ethical coffee – there is a wealth of information available by searching for “fair trade coffee” or “direct trade coffee” for those interested in delving deeper.

METABOLISM BOOSTING FOODSThe amount of caffeine in two cups of java cuts hunger by 35% and boosts metabolism by about 50 calories.
1/2 tsp of cinnamon causes the body to metabolize sugar 20 times faster, resulting in less hunger and fewer fat storage hormones

Low or no coffee consumption was associated with an increased risk of stroke in a study of 34,670 women (ages 49-83) followed for 10 years. It’s too soon to change coffee drinking habits, but the study should ease concerns of some women, researchers noted. Potential ways coffee reduces risk of stroke-weakening subclinical inflammation, reducing oxidative stress & improving insulin sensitivity.
“Some women have avoided consuming coffee because they have thought it is unhealthy. Increasing evidence indicates that moderate coffee consumption may decrease the risk of some diseases such as diabetes, liver cancer and possibly stroke”. (Susanna Larsson, Ph.D.- National Institute of Environmental Medicine, Sweden) taken from an item written in Granny Earth’s Connections April 2011 edition

Here is an Irish Coffee recipe to round off a meal of:
Beef Stew in Stout with Herb Dumplings
Irish Soda Bread (of course)
Apple Cake (in honor of St. Patrick himself planting an apple tree outside what is now Armagh city)
- Put the whiskey into a warmed heatproof glass with sugar to taste.
- Pour in the coffee and stir until the sugar has completely dissolved.
- Pour the cream very slowly over the back of a spoon that is just touching the top of the coffee and edge of glass. Keep pouring until all the cream is added and settled on the top.
- Do not stir! Drink the coffee through the cream

Coffee and Green Tea Slows Aging.
More good news for people who can’t get by without their daily coffee or tea fix:
These beverages may keep you young (not just at heart). According to recent research, coffee and tea could protect your DNA from oxidation, which makes you more susceptible to disease and premature aging. In the study, people who drank 800 ml (approx 3 1/2 cups) of coffee a day for five days had a reduced DNA-oxidation rate. Oxidation levels for water drinkers stayed about the same. Green tea showed similar health benefits in a Hong Kong study resulting in “younger DNA” and possibly adding as many as five years to their lives. Delicious Living February 2011

- No more cellulite. While coffee is wonderful for many reasons, it is actually the caffeine it contains that provides the added health benefits as a scrub. When coffee is applied to the surface of your skin, it helps redistribute fat cells and decrease the formation of cellulite.
- Problems with varicose veins. Many people accept varicose veins as a necessary evil--either as a sign of getting older or a predisposition inherited from Mom or Dad. Now with a coffee body scrub skin care routine, you may be able to prevent varicose veins or even make them vanish! The caffeine in a coffee scrub acts as a vascular restrictor--shrinking blood vessels, thus helping to reduce varicose veins
- It has been used for years in spas in Hawaii and on the coast of Bali.
**We have coffee scrub mixes for sale. Just add your own choice of oil when you are ready to use it, to maintain freshness!
