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!!

We will be at our usual space, L-4 (the last row- at the exit side and across from Sand Hill Berries)
Hope to see a lot of you there!!
Phew! So much to do to get ready for these markets! Dave roasts so that we have coffee that is as fresh as possible. Of course there is all the containers filled with so many items + the tent, coffeemakers, airpots and and and. I cannot sleep because I am sure I am forgetting something.
The good old alarm rings way too early, 5 am and I am usually just getting to bed somewhere between midnight and 2 am.
If any of you think I remind you of a zombie…… now you know why. LOL
Hoping all goes well tomorrow. It is always tough the first time, getting into the swing of things again.
Please come say hello and maybe even buy some coffee!!
