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!!

Okay, now who do I get mad at, me or Dave?
He calls at 7 am to tell me it is National Coffee Day. I am to send in ideas of coffee songs to WYEP and maybe hear our name and the song at 4:20 pm.. Wrong!!!! It is Harold Schultz’s birthday…think “Charbucks” and not Nat’l Coffee Day.
So….. enjoy ALL those 9 songs I posted on facebook in honor of National Coffee Day- September 29 2013
Guess I should know that I need to check into the info from Dave first. LOL
Enjoy Harold Shultz’s birthday today but don’t drink any burnt coffee. haha
a beautiful voice singing The Coffee Cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach

Who knew there were so many?
Listen to WYEP at 4:20pm
We are hoping to get a song on with mention of OLR on it today too!

Update on the domain name….. do not own it yet. GoDaddy said they could act as my (??? can’t remember term used) and determine a suitable price that the current owner would sell it for. Isn’t that so very kind?
On a positive note….. love the sun!! Maybe spring is here finally!
Sure sign for us is when we have to start sending out checks and applications for Ligonier Country Market and the May Mart etc
Our kick off again this year is….
The West Overton Garden Society’s Annual May Mart May 11th 9 am - 1 pm? The Old Distillery building (changed from the usual barn location)
There will be pastries and OLR coffee for sale at the entrance in the "Distillery Room". Tables are provided to sit and enjoy acoustic music as well. The main fun is perusing the many beautiful potted flowers, herbs, vegetables and heirloom tomatoes. Oh where to begin….or should I say stop? It can be an expensive day for me. There should be a swap table too! Bring a plant and swap for another one.
Hope to see you there!
