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!!

Drinking more than a cup a day was associated with a 22-25% lower risk of stroke, compared with those who drank less. (Stroke: Journal of the American Heart Association)
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

Dr. Weil
Question  Coffee to Prevent Gallstones?
I've been trying to cut back on caffeine, but I just read that drinking coffee can lower the risk of gallstones. What should I do?

Answer (Published 12/19/2002)
New results from a large study did show a 25 percent lower risk of gallstones among women who regularly drink four or more cups of coffee a day (compared to women who drink none). This finding, published in the December 2002 issue of the journal Gastroenterology, comes from the famous Harvard Nurses' Health Study, which has followed more than 80,000 women for 20 years. An earlier study found that drinking coffee lowers gallstone risk among men.
The Harvard researchers suggested that the caffeine in coffee is responsible for the gallstone effect, perhaps because it triggers gallbladder contractions that may discourage stone formation.
If you're prone to gallstones (risks are highest among overweight, mid-life women, diabetics and those whose mothers had gallstones), you can take a number of other preventive measures that may be better for overall health:

5 New Uses for Coffee Beans
From hand deodorizer to pore shrinker, check out creative ways to use coffee beans.
1. Pie Weights: When prebaking a piecrust, use beans to keep it from puffing up or shrinking into the pie plate: Line the bottom and sides of the cold dough with foil and fill to the brim with beans.
2. Hand Deodorizer: After handling onions or garlic, rub a few beans between your palms to eliminate any lingering smell.
3. Candle Anchor: Pretty and functional: Fill a hurricane vase with beans before adding a pillar candle to help keep the candle steady and minimize mess (the beans will catch the wax).
4. Nose Neutralizer: Sniff beans between spritzes at the perfume counter to cleanse your "palate" between fragrances.
5. Pore Shrinker: Place two cups of medium- to light-roast beans (which have more caffeine than dark varieties) in a bowl or a bathroom sink and fill with hot water. After a few minutes (when the water is cooler), splash your face for a tighter complexion.
