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!!

Coffee....is good for you!
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
