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!!

What’s Saint Patrick’s Day without Irish Coffee?

Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig oraibh

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day blessings to all!

Irish Coffee recipe
1 cup freshly brewed hot coffee  Old Linn Run coffee, of course! 
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 jigger Irish whiskey (1 1/2 ounces or 3 tablespoons)
Heavy cream, slightly whipped
Fill footed mug or a mug with hot water to preheat it, then empty. Pour piping hot coffee into warmed glass until it is about 3/4 full. Add the brown sugar and stir until completely dissolved. Blend in Irish whiskey. Top with a collar of the whipped heavy cream by pouring gently over back of spoon. Serve hot.

Tips for the Perfect Irish Coffee

The taste of a cozy winter - Irish Coffee
  • Heat your glass, it stops your drink from going cold!
  • Make sure the sugar is well dissolved in the coffee – check the bottom of the glass for granules
  • One measure of whiskey is plenty – but make it an Irish measure!
  • Be gentle with the cream. A light whip is all you need to layer it on top
  • Pour the cream over the back of the spoon (yes, we noticed Gareth used the front, but he’s a pro!)
  • Top off with a little sprinkle of chocolate
Take a little sip and enjoy!
