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!!

While it the “slow season” for us, I decided to take this blog out of retirement. Until now, I was utilizing this as another avenue to basically repeat what I was posting on Facebook etc.

In addition to this, I have decided to use this as a journal of the trials and tribulations of being an “entrepreneur”.  There certainly can be a lot to say at times, good and bad.

My daughter, Hadleigh said, “That is what blogs are for!”, in a way that told me I was a bit behind the times. haha  She suggested that I do a “Pain in the Butt” Fridays posting since owning your own business is just that at times. I think I will take her advice. (I made the font aqua for that title because that is her favorite color & it was her idea to do it after all.)

We shall see how this goes. I will write when there is time and reason to vent or rejoice, whenever I am inspired. I will add any info I think might be of interest. I hope whomever is reading this enjoys it & please feel free to comment……. as long as it is appropriate to this blog.

Hope to see some followers!!! It is lonely here! ;~{

Note: Old Linn Run Roastery is a partnership consisting of Dave & I. Dave is not “computer literate” and does not care to deal with it. (He has the incredible roasting skills, what more could we want?) Thus the reason for almost everything being written using the first person, “I”. I should also mention that we have a great deal of assistance when needed from Hadleigh, my Mom & Dad and even my grandmother, Muffin.

  1. On behalf of Dave, he wanted me to change the statement that he is not “computer literate”. I am to say he is a luddite
    1. One who fears technology (or new technology, as they seem pleased with how things currently are...why can't everything just be the same?)

    I have now fulfilled his request. ;~)
